"This book is an essential volume for the library of scorpion biologists (present and future), as well those interested in arachnids and arthropods in general...a very well-written and well-conceived book." -- Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research

Format: Hardcover
This book thoroughly covers many diverse aspects of scorpion research. Not only is this book about scorpion information, but it also explores how scorpions are good research subjects for studying other biological topics such as sight and cuticular development.

What this book does not do is present basic information about scorpion physiology and taxonomy. Those topics were covered in "The Biology of Scorpions" by Gary Polis. I found that book to be much more useful, but "Scorpion Biology and Research" was a very informative, if technical, read.

Format: Hardcover
This book can only be described as a complete and thorough synthesis of scorpion biology. This book is full of beautiful SEM photos and diagrams. It is a must-have for any serious scorpion biologist.

Format: Hardcover
At the time of writing this review there are two others for the book "Scorpion Biology And Research". One five star and one four star. I agree with everything they said that makes this a great book. And it can offer something for everyone. I'm not a professional but I am deeply involved in the serious scorpion study project at the citizen science level. I gave this book only 3 stars for the following reasons. First it is a bit dated specially when you look at all the advances made with in the scorpion Family Vaejovidae just in just 2014 alone. The second reason is I feel it is way overpriced (new <$400. to $234. used $286. to $140). I borrowed a copy from the Public Library. It was helpful but it needed too much support of other literature for my needs. It is clearly wonderful book and would be good to have but not at that price. For me to pay that much the book better answer every scorpion related question I have and a few questions I didn't even know I had.
