This book is the first offour volumes in the Handbook of Zoology series which treat the systematics and biology of Coleoptera. With approximately 350, 000 described species, Coleoptera are by far the most species-rich order of insects and the largest group of animals of comparable geological age. The beetle volumes will meet the demand of modern biologists seeking to answer questions about Coleoptera phylogeny, evolution, and ecology. This first Coleoptera volume covers the suborders Archostemata, Myxophaga and Adephaga, and the basal series of Polyphaga, with information on world distribution, biology, morphology of all life stages (including anatomy), phylogeny and comments on taxonomy.1994 [as VI and VII], Chatzimanolis 2003; Solodovnikov aamp; Newton 2005); Steninae, one of two pairs of glands emptying into the hindgut ... causing problems for farm workers or rural residents at times of high beetle populations ( Frank aamp; Kanamitsu 1987; Todd et al. ... into their eggs, 4) the toxin-producing capacity can be transmitted horizontally by consumption of those eggs or the resulting larvae, and 5)anbsp;...
