Last year an important book on the ecology and distribution of Carabidae was
Although it deals with the Dutch species and is written in Dutch, it is
still very useful for everybody interested in these beetles. There is a long
English summary explaining the lay-out of species descriptions, and there
are many graphs and maps, including distribution in the Netherlands AND
Europe, graphs of habitats and activity periods.
There are beautiful black & white drawings of about 40 beetles and colour
plates of 80 species, many habitats and some larvae.

The book is supplemented with a cd-rom, including an annotated check-list
with many ecological data (such as data on flight and dispersal) and a
bibliography (by S. de Felici).
