Synopsis: The goal is to cover the heteropteran fauna, in order to give the readers an idea about the diversity and importance of true bugs of this zoogeographical region. This book is not a catalog of the species of true bugs of the neotropics.? Section one contains an overview of the true bugs of the neotropics, a general description of their biology, morphology, development, feeding and reproduction and a detailed description of their classification and biogeography. Section two is dedicated to the main groups, i.e., the infraorder containing the families of true bugs. Each chapter will contain a general description of the families included. Aspects related to the biology and ecology of the main species will be covered and the less known species will, at least, be cited.
From the Back Cover:
True bugs (Heteroptera) is a diverse and complex group of insects that comprise nearly 38,000 described species in the world. Despite these many species known to science, a lot remain to be discovered particularly in the neotropics. In this area, the species so far described are, in general, poorly studied and the literature dealing with them, scattered. Inspired by this, True Bugs (Heteroptera) of the Neotropics presents the most complete and thorough revision on the information on the fauna of heteropterans of the Neotropical Region ever published.
Each major taxa that comprise each of the seven infraorders of Heteroptera are discussed in details. The most common and the less known species of each major family are presented in detail, highlighting aspects of their morphology, classification, biology and ecology, and eventual economic or medical importance. Each chapter presents an up-to-date review of the literature, with illustrations of the most representative species of each taxon of true bugs from the neotropics.
The book includes more than 3,000 references, driving readers to the most complete account ever compiled on trues bugs of the Neotropical Region.
