BugsCEP is a research and teaching aid for palaeoentomology, entomology and ecology. As well as habitat and distribution data, it includes tools for climate and environmental reconstruction, and facilities for storing site based abundance and collection data. A variety of searching and reporting functions greatly augment the efficiency of beetle based research.

Bugs is built around a comprehensive database of beetle ecology and (mainly) European fossil records which has been accumulated over the past 20 years.

The closest thing to a manual is Phil Buckland's thesis, freely available for download from Umeå University Library.
