Comments on the Bibliography: The foundation upon which this bibliography is based comes from a bibliography compiled by Dr. Joseph Eger. He kindly provided me with a copy of his bibliography some 15-20 years ago. We have maintained separate bibliographies since that time, but have upon occasion shared information on new publications, etc. I am also grateful to the late Dr. L.H. Rolston who also provided access to his bibliography (in card catalog format), and eventually donated much of his library to me. I am indebted to the interlibrary loan service here at NDSU - they have secured tons of hard to find literature for me. I am also grateful to many colleagues who have made copies of hard to find literature and have sent copies to me. Along these lines, I am especially grateful to David Rédei who has provided me with many obscure and hard to find papers, especially from Oriental journals. Thanks again!
This is a semi-annotated bibliography in that at the end of each citation, there should be some indication of whether I own the paper/book or not: "xerox" means that I have a xerox copy of the paper (sometimes page numbers or plate numbers are given if I own only part of the publication), "reprint" means that I have a reprint of paper, "computer copy" means that I have printed a copy from the internet (usually in pdf format so the printed version is identical to the journal version), and in some case it will say "shelf" (for a book on my shelf), or simply "D" if I have a copy but have not differentiated what type of copy I have. Sometimes it will say "E", "I", or "N". The "E" indicates that I know that Joe Eger has a copy, but I don't; the "I" means that I know that I can get a copy through our interlibrary loan service, but I presently don't have a copy; and the "N" denotes that I believe that NDSU has a copy, but I have not yet tracked it down. If I do not have a copy of an article, I have tried to indicate where the source of the citation came from [Zool. Rec., Ent. Abstr., etc. or from another publication], and in some cases, I have indicated what taxonomic groups are suppose to be mentioned in the publication.
As always, I will glady accept comments and corrections to the bibliographic entries. A few years ago, Wolfgang Ullrich went over my bibliography and provided me with many suggestions and corrections. Unfortunately, I have not yet incorporated many of his comments; I intend to do so in the future, and these files will then be updated. I am always glad to provide literature if you need it. Conversely, if you see that you have publications that I am unaware of, or that I do not have copies, please let me know.
I should also comment on the pdf papers posted here. These are copies of what I have in my files. Most are not from originals, and they often have my handwritten notes on them. In other words, they are not perfect copies, but they are probably good enough for someone who needs them for their research. Also, some of the copies I have contain only the pages pertinent to the Pentatomoidea, and so are not complete.
