CATALOGUE OF THE CICADOIDEA
by Allen F. Sanborn
2013, 1001 pages. This book is the fundamental reference tool for any researcher or student working with or studying cicadas. It is the third in a series of catalogs and bibliographies of the Cicadoidea covering 1981-2010. The work summarizes the cicada literature, providing a means for easy access to information previously published on a particular species or to allow researchers the ability to locate similar work that has been published on other species. A total of 2,591 references are included in the bibliography.
The book is a source of biological and systematic information that can be used by entomologists, individuals interested in crop protection, and students studying entomology, as well as anyone interested in cicadas. Each genus/species is identified with the reference, the page number, any figures (if applicable), the topics covered by the reference, any synonymies, and any biogeographic information mentioned for the species in the individual reference. An added benefit to the catalog is that it is the first complete species list for the Cicadoidea, including all synonymies and new combinations through 2012.
Key Features: Provides nearly four times the number of references of the previous catalog, demonstrating the explosion of data since that time
Contains all references found that mention a genus or species name in the work
Includes more than 300 additional references that were not in the two previous works on this subject
Features the first complete species list for the Cicadoidea, including all synonymies
Hardcover: 8-3/4 x 10-3/4″.
About the Author: Allen Sanborn is Professor of Biology at Barry University, Florida. He received his PhD at the University of Illinois. Dr. Sanborn is studying the mechanisms that permit habitat utilization and communication in insects of the superfamily Cicadoidea. The studies investigate the thermal adaptation, temperature regulation, endothermy, ecology, behavior, taxonomy, systematics, morphology, and acoustic biology to understand cicada biology.
