Until now, individuals wishing to identify British insects have found it difficult to track down the specialist keys published in obscure literature, whereas the popular guides are often misleadingly simplistic, covering only a fraction of the species. This book bridges the gap, providing expert guidance through the taxonomic maze. It contains an introduction to each group of organisms, and over 2000 references selected as being the most useful and up-to-date for accurate identification, together with notes on their relevance and coverage. A further chapter covers the understanding and retrieval of scientific references, with advice on using libraries and other information services. This will be an essential reference book for anyone involved in insect and arachnid identification, from interested amateurs to professionals dealing with unfamiliar groups.

MEDIA REVIEWS
' ... the volume brings an enormous amount of desirable information to a wide audience in a very compact form. Because of its scope, it will be of immediate use in many European countries besides Britain, and serves as a useful model to those working in other faunistic regions.' Martin H. Villet, Rhodes University
' ... an essential and up-to-date tool for all working with or interested in more than a single insect order.' Adrian Spalding, Entomologist's Gazette
'... an extremely valuable contribution to the entomological literature.' Colin W. Plant, Entomologist
"This book is essential for any library dealing with British or Irish fauna. It is also of some wider interest because books of broader regional or worldwide coverage are also included under each insect or arachnid group." Choice
"This will be an essential reference book for those involved in insect and arachnid identification." American Entomologist
"The publication of the first edition of A Checklist of British Insects by G.S. Koet and C. Hincks in 1945 caused an upsurge in amateur and professional entomology in the British Isles, and it can be expected that this new publication will do likewise. It not only points the way into the huge literature that can be utilized for the identification of British insects and arachnids, but it outlines where more work is needed." Bulletin of the Entomological Society of Canada
