9780674615144: A New General Catalogue of the Ants of the World

"A name is forever, or at least as long as taxonomy continues," Barry Bolton writes, and here are all the names, antique and modern, of all the ants that are or ever were--from the arctic to the tropical, the fossilized to the living, the mislabeled to the newly christened members of the family Formicidae. For every name that has ever been applied to ants, the book supplies a history and an account of current usage, together with a fully documented indication of the present-day classification. Its comprehensive bibliography provides references to original description, synonymy, homonymy, changes in rank, status, and availability, and alterations in generic status.

Organized by family group, genus group, and species group, this meticulously detailed but easily used volume is the ultimate resource for myrmecology. Along with Bolton's Identification Guide to the Ant Genera of the World, it will be the essential reference for anyone, expert or amateur, with an interest in ants.

About the Author:

Barry Bolton, now retired, is a Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society and Myrmecologist in the Biodiversity Division, Department of Entomology, Natural History Museum, London.

Review:

This book will have permanent shelf life. All entomological libraries and entomologists with even a marginal interest in ants have it, because its meticulously crafted synonymies cover all of ant classification from Linnaeus to the present. (E. O. Wilson, Harvard University)
