Canadian Agriculture Entomological Monographs

Canada is a long way from the South Pacific I know. I know also that their insects are very, very different from those in this part of the world which I know and love. But they have done a lot of excellent work on their own insects and now they've decided to open the floodgates and let all and sundry benefit from their work.

On a page that begins: "The Entomological Society of Canada (ESC) has obtained copyright permission from Her Majesty the Queen in the Right of Canada" they have put online in PDF form over 30 years of publications including the extremely valuable "Manual of Nearctic Diptera" volumes 1 to 3, and publications on the weevils and bark beetles of that fair northern country.

I'm looking forward to reaping the benefits...
