"There is much to do, and as Quentin Wheeler states in his chapter, "we do not yet know enough about insect diversity to characterize precisely the magnitude of our ignorance". Despite the challenges, this volume provides a comprehensive overview of our current knowledge. Tim New writes in his forward that he hopes that "some of the chapters will be key references as we progressively refine and enlarge our understanding". I feel that this book defines the baseline in this field at the beginning of the twenty-first century, and is destined to became an indispensable first port of can for any one initiating world in this field." (Antenna, 2010)

"This book contains a vast amount of information and will be an important reference for years to come." (CHOICE, December 2009)"Recommended for anyone even remotely interested in insects and their ecological importance." (Museum fur naturkunde, 2010)

"This book is a highly original account, providing many new insights and new summarized data that should not be missing on the shelves of any entomologist, and also other biologists and naturalists can benefit from this volume." (Tijdschrift voor Entomologie, April 2009)
