Bouchard, Patrice, editor.

Boasting an extraordinary visual diversity, beetles make up more than one fifth of all known life forms on earth. This book presents 600 significant examples, selected as part of a genome program. They are shown in glorious high definition photographs, life size and in detail, alongside an engraving offering a side or open-winged view. Each profile includes a population distribution map, a table of essential information, and a commentary revealing notable characteristics, related species, and a diagnosis of the specimens importance in terms of taxonomy, rarity, behaviour, and scientific significance. Arranged taxonomically, this essential reference reveals the variety, importance and beauty of beetles.
