Allen F. Sanborn and Maxine S. Heath have released a second edition of their book Cicadas of North American North of Mexico.
The second edition includes the addition of four new genera, the removal of two genera, and the addition of a few new species that were described since the first edition. We also added distributional data for all species.
Purchase a copy online from the Entomological Society of America.
While tweeting about my scientific in-laws, I can’t leave out mother-in-law Maxine Shoemaker Heath. The second edition of her “Big book of cicadas” was just published. It is full of photos & drawings of cicadas. Great stuff. @aaas @cicadamania pic.twitter.com/N6nqiu9UG7
