Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of abbreviations that occur in the book World Catalogue of Insects. The list of abbreviations for museum collections is based on the list provided in Norrbom et al. (1999) and was extended to include all depositories for primary types of Drosophilidae cited in the BioSystematic Database of World Diptera, version 8.5, with the exception of personal collections. Name, city and country for each institution are cited. The book focuses on the Drosophilidae, which is a large, cosmopolitan family of acalyptrate flies (Diptera, Schizophora). Drosophilidae is one of the most important groups of insects, because it includes the model organism Drosophila melanogaster Meigen, which has been studied intensively by geneticists, developmental biologists and others.

Keywords: acalyptrate flies; biology; catalogue of insects; Drosophilidae; geneticist
