oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Notes on the insect complex on Calpurnia intrusa in Basutoland
To have been a naturalist in the days of Linnaeus must have been pleasing and satisfying. One could study all the known species of animal life in the world and have all the published literature in one small room. Today this sounds incredible, when entomologists cannot even cope with a few families, let alone orders, of insects. It becomes daily more impossible too, to keep abreast with the vast outpourings of literature on one's own particular subject, narrow though the field may be. This is specially true in South Africa where there are no large specialised libraries.
