Editorial Reviews

'a major contribution to our understanding of a few groups of importance in the biota of the area ... all articles provide good information ... Introductory chapters place the fauna in context geologically and geographically; these chapters alone make the book worth picking up for perusal ...perhaps begins an important modern series of contributions in an easy-to-use format ... an important contribution to entomology and the Mesoamerican area.'Terry L. Erwin, Smithsonian Institute, Washington D.C., The Quarterly Review of Biology, Volume 69
