Preamble

The work of J. Paclt (1956), 'Biologie der primär flügellosen Insekten', is the earliest comprehensive work on the references of Collembola, containing the entire bibliography on Apterygota from Linnaeus to 1955, and listing a total of about 2400 publications. The next important work on references of Collembola taxonomy is the monograph of Salmon (1964) which contains lists of all species, localities and publications on Collembola until about 1962. Salmon listed 2603 references. Post 1962 publications are estimated to be at least 5000. In his monograph on the biology of the Collembola, Hopkin (1997) lists about 2500 references; about 50% of the publications from 1960 to 1979, about 90% of the publications between 1980 to 1989 and all publications from 1990 to about 1995 are included. Hopkin (1997-2005) maintained at his web site lists of recent Collembola references. These lists to recent literature on Collembola are organised chronologically on year of publication and alphabethically on author. From mid 2005, those webpages were discontinued. They are maintained up to 2007 by Jeff Battigelli at his website.
References of new apterygotan taxa are published in (Feuilles d') Informations Apterygotologiques collated by Cyrille D'Haese and Jean-Marc Thibaud at Laboratoire d'Entomologie, MHNM, 45 Rue Buffon, F-75005, Paris, France (available by email from Cyrille D'Haese).
Additional references of recent publications of Dr Bengtsson, G. have been added.
Additional references of publications (1945-1977) of Dr Wray, D.L. have been added.
Additional references of publications of Dr Nicole Poinsot-Balaguer have been added.
Additional references of publications of Dr Andrzej Szeptycki have been added.
Based on the 'Apterygoten - Datenbank' of Adolf Suttrop (November 1997), about 900 literature references of publications dated from 1844 to 1971 have been added.
We would like to acknowledge Drs Darwin Bohnet, Luc De Bruyn, Saral Kumar Mitra, E.A. Moravvej, José G. Palacios-Vargas, Wanda M. Weiner, Jan Hendrik van Oers and Ivan Vtorov for providing additional references.
You might also want to try our experimental on-line searchable literature database of more then 6000 references.
You might also want to try the experimental timeline service of Google that presents on a time scale all publications on Collembola that are currently available on-line.

This on-line literature list contains about 7000 references, of which about 1000 publications are dated from 1783 to 1977 and about 6000 publications are dated from 1978 to now.
References to literature on Collembola are organised alphabethically on author.
