Indonesia is known to be the home of an incredibly biodiverse fauna, with thousands and thousands of amazing animal species. This is particularly true for the Arthropoda, which is the phylum of multi-legged invertebrates such as insects, spiders, scorpions, centipedes, and millipedes. Despite continuous taxonomic efforts to systematically describe and name newly discovered species, most Indonesian arthropods remain unknown to science. This book, as a product of the intensive collaboration between the Department of Plant Protection at IPB University and the Department of Animal Ecology at University of Göttingen within the EFForTS project, is aimed at the nexus between ecological research and taxonomical discovery. Through cooperative publication with BRIN Publishing, this book focuses on four major beetle families from Jambi Province in the heart of Sumatra, containing ecological background, identification keys to subfamily and genera, and a photographic collection of more than 500 thus far mostly undocumented species encountered in lowland rainforest and plantations of rubber and oil palm. Despite boasting highly biodiverse ecosystems, taxonomic discoveries from Jambi Province have thus far been virtually nonexistent, which this book aims to alleviate. The publication of this book is thus greatly hoped to provide a useful tool and reference for beetle identification species descriptions from the region, and helps to boost the limited number of identification books about arthropods, especially beetles, in Indonesia. Happy reading!
