Trichoptera Literature Database

June 11, 2013

I came across the Trichoptera Literature Database (TLD) created by University of Minnesota, USA. The database is a considerably more comprehensive and advanced version of my own list of Trichoptera references for Ireland, as it is a searchable database that includes references related to Trichoptera, particularly taxonomy, systematics, distribution, biogeography, and evolution of extant and fossil species across the world.The database includes PDFs of rare, important or out-of-print older works and also some current literature where copyright laws allow.

This resource is well worth a look if you work on caddisflies, especially if you have published papers and want to be sure they have included them in the database.

The citation for the TLD is as follows:

Holzenthal, Ralph W., Patina K. Mendez, Joshua W.H. Steiner, and Jolanda Huisman. 2012. Trichoptera Literature Database: a collaborative bibliographic resource for world caddisfly research. [URL:]
