New book published

We have recently published Freshwater Leeches of Britain and Ireland: Keys to the Hirudinea and a Review of their Ecology, which is the latest in the FBA’s series of Scientific Publications (No. 69). This volume is the fourth FBA Scientific Publication to provide an identification key to freshwater leeches, the most recent edition appearing in 1979. In this new version the nomenclature has been revised and the keys to species re-organised into a more logical progression. Published in softback, it is available at a price of £27 (or £20.25 for FBA Members) plus postage.
