This message (apologies for cross-posting) is being sent on behalf of Paul Skelley (Entomology Section Administrator, Florida State Collection of Arthropods (FSCA)) and Zachary Prusak (Florida Fire Manager for the Nature Conservancy) who are working on getting all of the donated books in FSCA's possession out to the greater entomological community (and beyond) in two ways. You can either 1) stop by the FSCA and purchase books in person upon request or 2) buy some on e-bay. 

The purpose off these sales is to raise funds for the Center for Systematic Entomology (CSE) ( For the past 20 years, the CSE has served as a non-profit corporation designed to further systematics in its broadest sense. The CSE has supported the FSCA in many ways, including: purchases of computer software, library materials, museum study trips, labor for bulk sample sorting, and has even provided a number of grants for specialists to study at the FSCA.

What should you get the entomologist in your life these Holidays? Below are links to some of the books currently for sale on eBay with more to come in early 2018!

Thanks for looking!
