    Written for scientists and not enthusiasts, this is still the only book for scorpion enthusiasts.

    I agree that the Polis book is fantastic, but it is no longer the only one. Oxford Press recently published (2001) a book co-edited by Brownell and Polis (pre-mortem) entitled "Scorpion Biology and Research." I have not read it yet, but I have flipped through it and can barely wait to sink my teeth into it (or maybe even read it). While it doesn't seem to have some of the useful features of the first Polis book (ID keys, lots of general overviews and tables), it does have a series of articles of definite interest to the scorpion enthusiast.

    Cheers,
    Dave
