Tiger beetles are among the most widely investigated groups of insects, especially in terms of their ecology and geographic distribution.The first edition of A Field Guide to the Tiger Beetles of the United States and Canada, published in 2005, has served as a field and natural-history guide to all known species of tiger beetles found in North America above the Mexican border. The 2nd edition is a pleasant and comprehensible handbookof the identification, distribution, natural history, and habitat details of the 116 species of tiger beetles in North America.
