Index of Past Newsletter Issues

The Newsletter of the Biological Survey of Canada (Terrestrial Arthropods) is published twice yearly (Spring and Fall). The Newsletter communicates information about systematic and faunistic entomology that may be of interest in Canada, and reports especially on activities relevant to the Biological Survey.

Index of Past Issues

Regularly occurring features such as List of Requests for Material or Information (each Spring issue), The Quiz Page (each issue starting 1988), Quips and Quotes (each issue), Selected Publications (each Fall issue), Selected Future Conferences (each issue starting Fall 1995), and the list of Members of the Scientific Committee (each Fall issue) are not listed.

Selected articles from earlier issues (Vol. 1, No. 1 to Vol 16, No. 1) are available in pdf format by clicking on the appropriate link below. Beginning with the Fall 1997 issue (Vol. 16, No. 2) the entire newsletter is available in html and/or pdf format. 

A limited number of paper copies of past issues are available on request. Please contact the Survey Secretariat.
