A fascinating introduction to this huge and diverse group of insects - the Coleoptera. Beetles make up 40 per cent of all insects. The number of known beetle species in the world - more than 350 000 - is more than six times the number of all vertebrate species. A Guide to the Beetles of Australia highlights the enormous diversity of this unique insect Order. It emphasises the environmental role of beetles, their relationships with other plants and animals and their importance to humans.
George Hangay has had an interest in insects since early childhood. He studied beetles in many parts of the world and in the last four decades he focused on the Australian fauna. After his retirement from the Australian Museum, where he worked as Chief Preparator, he participated in various projects as a consultant, curated the insect collection of AQIS (NSW) and wrote several articles and books. He continues to collaborate with many Australian and overseas coleopterists.
"A book that will be useful to both amateurs and professionals, be they entomologists, coleopterists, ecologists, conservationists, or general lovers of the great natural beauty and biodiversity of beetles in the land 'Down Under'."--Robert E. Woodruff, Florida State Collection of Arthropods, Gainesville, Florida
