Aquatic Coleoptera Bibliography 2009

compiled by Sharon Jasper


This bibliography is on Water Beetle World at All citations, no matter how old, that are not contained in the complete on-line bibliography may be included each year. I would appreciate receiving copies of all papers on Haliplidae, all papers on North American, including Mexican, water beetles, and all papers on the ecology of water beetles. For the rest, I would appreciate receiving citations in an e-mail message or attachment to an e-mail. Please send them to
