"An impressively comprehensive text on the subject. Provides information in a well-organized format." - Southeastern Naturalist, Issue 3/2, 2004 "The most complete text on the subject. Covers more species of North American beetles than any previous publication. This 2 volume set provides general features for quick diagnoses, as well as dichotomous keys for identifying every genus of beetle occurring in the United States and Canada. Geared towards graduate students, university faculty, and professionals alike, this set contains contributions from acknowledged specialists in the field and is an essential reference for identification and ecology of North American beetles." - Southeastern Naturalist, Issue 3/3, 2004 "As the successor to the classic work on this subject, The Beetles of the United States: A Manual for Identification by R.H. Arnett, Jr. published nearly 40 years ago (1960), this excellent set is indispensable for graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals seriously interested in beetle identification and ecology." --CHOICE, January 2003. Un magnifique volume qui complete le premier de la shrie, avec ses 22 familles les plus primitives des Colhoptkres, dont les Carabiques. Cette fois 109 familles sont traithes, soit 131 familles en tout. Nous sommes loin du premier volume de Ross Arnett "The Beetles of the United States" publih en un seul volume en 1962. J'avais quant a moi l'hdition de 1968. Cet ouvrage comportait alors 1112 pages et htait imprimh en petit format. La qualith de la publication et des illustrations n'htait en rien comparable aux volumes actuels. Une belle production de CRC Press qui fait honneur a cette maison d'hdition. Une trks complhtebibliographie termine les chapitres .... Fhlicitons, les auteurs, les collaborateurs, et finalement les hditeurs d'avoir rhalish ce magnifique ouvrage. Ces deux volumes restent indispensables a qui veut Htudier la faune colHoptHrologique de l'Amhrique du Nord et du Nord du Mexique, en un mot la faune nharctique. Cette faune a des hlhments en commun avec l'Asie et surtout le Vieux monde, les connections ayant existh a diverses hpoques avec les continents voisins. La faune des Antilles, de l'Amhrique Centrale n'est pas loin non plus et ce livre peut servir de base a leur htude. Une mise a jour de cette qualith serait peut-jtre nhcessaire dans notre pays, coordinant les Faunes de France, qui hhlas sont loin d'avoir fait le tour des Colhoptires. Translation: " We have come a long way from the initial work of Ross Arnett" The Beetles of the United States" published in a single volume in 1962.... The quality of that publication and its illustrations was nothing compared to the present volumes. A beautiful production of CRC Press.... A very complete bibliography is at the end of each chapter." Congratulations to the authors, the collaborators, and, finally, to the editors for having put together this magnificent work. These two volumes will remain indispensable for those who want to study the Coleoptera fauna of North America that is north of Mexico, in a word the Nearctic fauna. This fauna has some elements in common with Asia and especially with the Old World, the connections having existed in various epochs with the neighboring continents. The fauna of the Antilles and of Central America is nearby and this book can act as basis for their study" -Pierre Jolivet, Nouvelle Revued'Entomologie, Paris, France
