About this title


Tiger Beetles are one of the most-studied groups of non-pest insects and are increasingly chosen as indicator species for efforts to preserve natural habitats. This richly illustrated book provides a review of research on the natural history, systematics, behavior, physiology, ecology, and conservation of tiger beetles. The authors draw upon past and recent studies and their own extensive research experience to provide a synthesis of current knowledge on tiger beetle biology. Moreover, they apply this knowledge to a detailed description of the rich fauna of the south Atlantic coastal states (Delaware to Georgia); a region where tiger beetle populations have been little studied but heavily impacted by change.
