Details of Expeditions and Field experience.
The Manual of Afrotropical Diptera is a detailed, academic, four volume text of flies in sub-saharan Africa.
Providing insight to all the 108 families known from the region, and covering over 20,000 species, this collaboration of over 90 international experts on Diptera, is a unique synopsis of the flies known from the Afrotropical Region.
In a professional format, this treatise provides the basics for understanding the diversity of a major order of insects in a large tropical and sub-tropical region and is the first such synopsis of its kind for any major insect order occurring in the Afrotropics.
The content includes discussions on biology and immature stages, economic importance, classification, identification to the generic level, as well as a synopsis of each genus. Hard copies of the Manual of Afrotropical Diptera should be ordered directly from the publishers, SANBI, South Africa.
In the United Kingdom copies are available from Pemberley Natural History Books.
