The book presents, in a consistent form, all known published and field research information concerning Bulgarian Buprestidae. A cartographic system based on UTM grid has been used for the presentation of species distribution. The species accounts comprise general distribution, localities in Bulgaria, larval host-plants, and taxonomic remarks. Maps and data presented in the catalogue allow quick and easy analysis of the type and structure of the species ranges and the current level of research. This information may help in the future selection of the species and areas for protection, serve as a basis for monitoring of the endangered species, and should enable evaluation of the areas in terms of faunal richness.
