Dear Colleagues,


I want to draw your attention, particularly to those interested on the biodiversity of the Atlantic Islands to a new book about the Coleoptera of a group of tiny islands set between Madeira Archipelago and the Canary Islands. These islands are called the “Salvage Islands” and belong to Portugal who declared them as Natural Protected Area.


This new book entitled “The Coleoptera of the Salvage Islands” authored by Peter Stüben illustrates in high resolution all the 78 currently known species of beetles with 278 colour photographs. It is a multi-language edition (English, Portuguese and German) in A4 format and 120 pages. The best news is the price, only 30€ (+ shipping) whose sale will contribute to future publication of similar guides on other Insect Orders of the local fauna.



You can order it from:

Curculio Institute

D-41066 Moenchengladbach, Hauweg 62, Germany
