The Biology of Centipedes

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, 2006 - Science - 488 pages
This is a comprehensive account of centipede biology providing a critical review of the work covering anatomy, behaviour, reproduction and life history, predators and parasites, physiology, ecology and taxonomy. It is an important source-book of particular value to scientists working directly with this group and to soil ecologists and those more generally interested in arthropods, arthropod affinities and their evolution. This is a book from an internationally respected scientist and includes many first-hand accounts of his own work both on temperate and tropical species.

The critical and very interesting fact that Centipes (in spite of the large variety in length) have only odd number of leg pairs is not mentioned (that I can see). .
