Australian Ladybird Beetles (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae): Their Biology and Classification

Australian Ladybird Beetles (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae): Their Biology and Classification (EPUB ebook)

By Slipinski, Adam

This book, by Australia's ladybird beetle specialist, Dr Adam Slipinski, illustrates Australia's diverse and fascinating ladybird beetle fauna - the commoner spotted species and the many others that are striped, glossy, and even very hairy. Most are predatory, but some are leaf f...eeders. This book reviews all 57 currently recognised genera of Australian Coccinellidae, recognising 260 valid described species, and including some genera and species newly described here. All genera are diagnosed, described and illustrated and a key to their identification is provided. Larvae of 30 species are described, illustrated and keyed. Sets of colour and black and white plates display these often beautifully colourful beetles, and their key features. The book is a must for all people interested in Australia's beetle fauna, in biocontrol and in natural resource management. This book was originally published in hardback by Australian Biological Resources Study (ABRS) in 2007 and is now available in a digital format.
