Abstract

This issue marks the beginning of the fifth volume of Terrestrial Arthropod Reviews ( TAR ). As usual, the fleeting passage of time surprises me towards the end of each year, when I sit in the peace of my home office to write these brief remarks. Progress at the editor's end of TAR 's operations has been steady. Broadly speaking, I feel optimistic about the future of Terrestrial Arthropod Reviews and below I explain why. First, during year 2011, Terrestrial Arthropod Reviews published 13 papers (excluding book reviews and editorials), more contributions per issue than in any previous volume of TAR . Amongst those, most contributions emphasized insects, especially the four currently dominant megaorders: Coleoptera or beetles, Lepidoptera or butterflies, Diptera or true flies, and Hymenoptera or ants, bees, wasps, and their allies. There were also papers on other terrestrial arthropods, such isopods, centipedes, and millipedes.A fascinating pattern emerged for published themes 2011: most papers emphasized arthropod ecology. Much to my satisfaction, some papers addressed human welfare issues, such as health and food security. Finally, we published a paper on molecular systematics and a most welcomed biographical contribution. The geographical span of the organisms discussed in those TAR
