Dear Colleagues who attended Acarology IX in Columbus:
We are nearing completion of the proceedings and symposium volumes....one is at the printer the other close behind. We need to update the addresses for those of you who have moved/changed address since July, 1994. If you or someone you know attended and a change in address is required, please send this to: Needham.firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want the mailing addresses we currently have on file I can send it via e-mail.
If you have already notified me or another editor, please send the change
anyway. If you paid the full registration or were awarded an honorary membership
then you will receive both volumes, postpaid. Those who want the proceedings
at the prepublication cost can still order at a reduced cost.
Contact Needham.email@example.com if you want further information. Thanks for your considerable patience.

Dear Dr Zhang,
A forthcoming issue of the Records of the Australian Museum contains taxonomic material that will be of interest to researchers working on the Acari. May we place the following notice on your list?
The December, 1996 issue of the Records of the Australian Museum, is devoted to four papers on Australian oribatid mites (Acarina: Cryptostigmata), by Glenn S. Hunt. The 138 pages review the Australian fauna for the families Pedrocortesellidae, Pheroliodidae and Hammeriellidae and describe three new genera and more than 40 species (33 new) from soil and arboreal habitats. The world distribution of the families is briefly discussed and keys are given to genera and species in Australia. The paper is profusely illustrated with scanning electron micrographs of exceptional quality. Several explanatory figures are provided which illustrate key morphological characters.
This special issue will be available direct from the publishers: the Australian Museum; pre-publication orders are welcome.
Price AU$33.00; economy air postage and handling AU$9.20 (or AU$3.00 within Australia). Visa or MasterCard orders should be accompanied by card number, expiry date and name of cardholder. Otherwise payment must be made in Australian Dollars (AUD) by bank cheque, bank draft or international money order (no personal cheques please). Pro-forma invoices can be posted if required.

Their Biology, Natural Enemies and Control
Edited by E.E. Lindquist, M.W. Sabelis and J. Bruin
World Crop Pests Volume 6
This book is a timely compilation of synthesized information on behaviourally
fascinating and economically important mites. The book gives much attention
to fundamental aspects of eriophyoid anatomy, behaviour, ecology and even
systematics, as bases for understanding the ways of life of eriophyoid
mites and their effects on host plants; in turn, this will lead to developing
the most appropriate means of regulating mites as detrimental or beneficial
organisms. It presents new views intended to stimulate interest in eriophyoids
and their enemies, and it points to areas where further research is needed.
This book is intended for extension workers, experts of acarology and plant
protection as well as students, teachers and researchers.
