AuthorsJowett, K.

A simple ID guide for quick and easy identification of useful carabids to monitor pest control potential in farm habitats. This guide is to aid in the identification to key carabid species and functional groups found in UK farmland. All ID features are designed to be useable in the field, by eye or with a 10x hand lens. There are over 350 species of carabid in the UK. Some species cannot be identified without a microscope. Using this key, the most abundant and useful species or families of carabids in respect to agricultural productivity can be identified with a moderate degree of certainty.”
