A DIPTERIST'S HANDBOOK, Second Edition
By Peter Chandler, editor, with contributions by 42 other authors
Amateur Entomologists' Society, UK, 2010
Cite: 735852
This handbook provides a valuable reference for everyone interested in the study of flies, both beginners and experienced dipterists. Since the first edition appeared in 1978, there have been considerable advances in knowledge of Diptera, and new techniques and equipment used in their study have developed. The Handbook has been fully updated and new subjects have been added so that it has grown substantially to more than twice the size of the first edition.
