The Pan-Pacific Entomologist 88(2)—Penrose Memorial issue

It is with great pleasure that I announce the publication of The Pan-Pacific Entomologist Penrose Memorial issue (volume 88, number 2), mailed 14 September 2012. Published by the Pacific Coast Entomological Society, this issue is dedicated to the memory of the late Richard L. Penrose (1943–2011); long time member of the guild of California coleopterists. As Managing Editor, I had the distinct honor and pleasure of overseeing the assembly and production of this issue; however, it is only from the selfless efforts of many individuals that this issue came to fruition. I would like to thank the PCES Executive and Editorial Boards, the contributing authors and the reviewers for their participation in making this issue possible. Three individuals deserve special mention for their particularly stellar efforts: Richard Westcott (Oregon Department of Agriculture) and Chuck Bellamy (California Department of Food and Agriculture) for their dogged persistence in promoting the idea and recruiting contributing authors, and Floyd W. Shockley (Smithsonian Institution), who as the journal’s Coleoptera Subject Editor oversaw the review, revision and acceptance of the bulk of the papers appearing in this coleopcentric issue.

If you are not a PCES member, now is a good time to join. Membership is only $25/year ($12.50 for students) and includes four quarterly issues of The Pan-Pacific Entomologist. Following are the contents of the Penrose Memorial issue with hyperlinks to online versions through BioOne. Abstracts & References are open access, while Full Text and PDF versions are available to BioOne subscribers.

    • At this time, online access is through a separate subscription with BioOne. Stay tuned, however… 😉

      Also, a word of advice to a youngster from someone who has been around awhile: Subscribe as soon as you can to as many journals in your scope of interest as soon as you can and stick with them. Cost may seem significant now, but it pales in comparison to the treasure that long, continous journal series in your personal library will become. I’ve been a PCES member for 25 years now and have my back issues hardbound in 3-volume sets (along with a half-dozen other society journals – some of which I’ve managed to go back and acquire the entire run). These journal sets are a centerpiece of my personal library, of which I am quite proud. Of course, not everyone loves books as much as I do! 🙂

      • I definitely appreciate the advice Ted, and would gladly follow it if not for the fact that I probably have 2-5 moves in the near future and have (dare I say it) too many books/papers already. I’ll probably still join PCES now though because it’s cheap, we don’t have access at my university (shocking) and because I know someone on the editorial board! 🙂

        Thanks for the nudge!

      • Ted,
        I know this is an older post but totally agree. Get access to as many journals as you can. I live in Illinois and have a wonderful library on North American Lepidoptera with books going back to the 1600’s. But as you, the centerpiece (and what I use the most) are my periodicals. I have complete (or nearly so)runs of just about every major entomological journal on the continent and wouldn’t trade me for the world. So many now are printed in very limited runs (I moved and forgot to renew a couple and by following year there were no copies available, including the one above)! Anyway, sounds like you’re in Missouri, we should get together and talk books someday as I probably love books as much as you do.

        PS – Morgan, you can never have to many books/papers!!

  1. Got my copy today. Looks great. Seconded on the journal subscription/collection advice. I’ve run out of shelf space, but it’s great having original literature, even though PDFs take up considerably less space. And don’t forget the PCES meetings. They’re fun to attend and you never know who you’re going to meet next.

    • I’ve gone to PDFs as much as anyone, but I can’t caress their covers and won’t be able to smell that “old book” smell years from now.

      I do wish I lived close enough to make the meetings. I did go to some in the 90s when I was in Sac town – purchased Norman Rumpp’s nearly complete run of The Coleopterists Bulletin (missing only vols. 1–4, whcih I eventually found elsewhere).
