Dung beetle links:

Here are some links where you can find out more about dung beetles in various countries, some of them are worth reading even if they are not for your country because they will still give you good general information (particularly the resources for Australia (keep strolling down the page) where introducing them has been a huge success and lots of research has taken place).

If you come across any information that you feel should be included here please email me with a link at [email protected]

Europe and Africa are home to many dung beetles. Some of the imported dung beetles in Australia are from these regions for example, so you should have no problem finding out about them. If you do find any good links please let me know so that I can list them here - [email protected]
