In this part we are expect to accumulate articles and brief essays on all beetle families. Style and opportunities of the Internet allow to place in parallel articles of different authors on one subject. Three are no restrictions. Any one can write on any number of families.

In the first turn we are planning to prepare essays on large families that are traditionally studied (or were studied) at the Zoological Institute or by our colleagues from other institutions. But this in no way prevents including your article about some exotic family including one species that has never been studied in Russia.

You may take part also in making a design of this page. If you can offer a more expressive colour pictogram of a representative of any family (60-80 pixels), preferably with white background). We would be happy to place your design instead of the one already present.
