Phoridae are probably the insect family with the greatestdiversity of larval habits, but the least studied of the largefamilies of flies due to identification difficulties. This bookcollates what is known aboutthe natural history of the Phoridaeworld. It reviews eggs and oviposition, larval habits (includingsaprophages, kleptoparasites, fungus breeders, plant feeders,predator, parasitoids, parasites and enemies), pupae andtheirenemies, development, adult habits (including feeding, specialassociations, courtship, mating, phoretic mites and enemies) andecological aspects. There follows a new user-friendly and extensivelyillustrated key toworld genera and a review of the identificationliterature for each of the 229 genera recognized. A review of methodsand an extensive bibliography complete the work.

` ... well worth having a look between thecovers.' The Bulletin of the Amateur Entomologists' Society `This book is a tremendous achievement and represents virtuallyour total knowledge of the family in all its aspects and indicateswhere further work lies waiting. It provides a sure foundation for allfuture studies.' Entomologist's Monthly Magazine
