Published: 12 October 2008

For those who love the spectacular larger water beetles of the British Isles, this is the publication that you have been waiting for!

The AES is delighted to announce the publication of the only modern publication with colour illustrations of all of our aquatic coleopteran megafauna and it provides the most up-to-date distribution maps revealing their current distributions.

Jam-packed with fascinating details of their life-histories, this book covers 11 species including the 6 native 'Great Diving Beetles' and the 'Silver Water Beetles'. It is also copiously illustrated and has much additional information including details of observed climate-induced range changes and the conservation measures required to ensure their continued survival. The cover is also beautifully illustrated by the famous wildlife illustrator, Richard Lewington.

The book costs £9.50 to members of the AES and £12.60 to non-members via our online shop. The book will be on sale at our annual exhibition and in our online shop: The larger water beetles of the British Isles.
