Synopses on Palaearctic Collembola

Since 1993, a team of international researchers on Collembola led by the editor, Prof. Dr. Wolfram Dunger, contributes to the “Synopses on Palaearctic Collembola”. A total of eight volumes is scheduled, five of which, apart from the introduction part, have already been published. These volumes depict the current state of knowledge about systematics and taxonomy, ecology and distribution as well as the overall relevance of Collembola for life processes in soil. Special emphasis is laid on modern identification keys, high-quality figures and a critique of current taxonomic knowledge.
