The Ephemeroptera suffer from a complex taxonomy, [through which] this book steers a sensible course [...] and the authors discuss the various controversial opinions where appropriate. [F]or the amount of information consolidated in this single volume it actually represents good value for money. For the specialist or serious student of the group this is an essential work; in short it is a remarkable and ground-breaking achievement.
