Pete Boardman, Biodiversity Training Project Officer at the Field Studies Council at Preston Montford, has recently published his book titled ‘A Provisional Account and Atlas of the Craneflies of Shropshire’.
The book is now available from the Preston Montford Field Centre or by post for only £15 (plus £2 p p) with all proceeds going to the Field Studies Council with the fore-thought that this publication will enable other entomologists in Shropshire to publish work of other local groups. The book covers 233 species of craneflies and allied species that have been recorded in the county and shows maps for each species.
The printing was part funded by the Shropshire Biodiversity Partnership. This publication will assist the gathering of information about important species of craneflies including the seven BAP species.
