The birth of this seven-pound book represents a milestone in the understanding and comprehensive documentation of a well-known, little-liked family of biting flies from North America. Over a period of 200 years there have been over 2000 papers and 185 theses or dissertations published on North American blackflies. There are a number of regional guides to Simuliidae but this book sets the standard for the whole of the North American fauna. It covers all of the known 254 species of blackflies, including 43 new species descriptions in a most comprehensive fashion.
