"The result is a complete book, highlighting however that there is still much to learn from these creatures."  (Ethology Ecology & Evolution, 1 May 2013)

"This book clearly demonstrates the value of dung beetles in a multitude of research disciplines and deserves a place on the bookshelf any scientist or natural historian."  (J Insect Conserv, 9 February 2012)

"Whilst this is already an interesting read, my overwhelming feeling is that there is an opportunity to greatly extend work on the ecology of dung beetles, with a real hope that they will provide genuine insight into common ecological problems. Perhaps this feeling is just what the authors hoped would be produced by their work."  (British Ecological Society Bulletin, 1 March 2012)

"I have however no doubt that there will be a second edition in five or so years time. And if any book deserves a second edition (with more in-situ photographs), it truly is this one." (The Amateur Naturalist magazine, 2011)
