Synopses Series

The Linnean Society's Synopses of the British Fauna publications are a series of concise, systematic works on selected groups of animals designed for use as field guides. These illustrated field and laboratory pocket-size books meet both the needs of amateur and professional naturalists. Each volume presents a more detailed account of a group of animals than can be found in most field guides, and bridge the gap between the popular guide and more specialist monographs and treaties.
