    This meticulously researched overview of the Diptera explores the life histories, habits and habitats of flies. Author and photographer Stephen Marshall's landmark book includes user-friendly illustrated keys and unprecedented photographic coverage, with more than 2.000 stunning colour photographs showing the world's fly families in their natural environment. All of the world's fly families are included, with photographic coverage spanning the range from common deer flies and fruit flies through deadly tsetse flies and malaria mosquitoes, with thousands of spectacular species such as exotic stalk eyed flies, giant robber flies and hedgehog flies in between.

    The world of flies, currently populated by over 160.000 named species, is made accessible by this book, with unrivalled comprehensive and detailed coverage. Everything from the biology of flies and interactions with plants and animals, to the evolution and distribution of flies, and a family-by-family overview of the world's fly families and subfamilies is included.

    The Diptera is arguably the most important order of insects, killing millions of people a year by transmitting devastating diseases, and playing an even more important role by pollinating plants, controlling pest insects and disposing of organic matter. But all that pales beside the apparently infinite diversity and remarkable beauty of flies, as should become evident after perusing the pages of this book.
