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
since 1985. The latest database update is from the 1st October 2014.
