Introduction to Atropos
Atropos was launched in April 1996 as a bi-annual publication; now it appears three times a year, with an annual migration review. A central theme of the publication is insect migration, but all subjects relevant to British Lepidoptera and Odonata are covered, including conservation, identification, biology, field observations and material on Western Palearctic species of relevance to Britain. The varied content is a mixture of in-depth articles and lighter features, written by both professionals and amateurs. The editorial team contains some of the top names in British entomology; all are dedicated enthusiasts.
Atropos is now published three times a year: spring, summer and autumn. Each issue contains eight colour plates featuring topical insects, identification shots and habitats. Occasional specimen plates are included to illustrate identification articles. An annual Migration Review is additionally published in the winter, which contains the popular Reports from Coastal Stations, and the Migrant Dragonflies and Rarer Immigrant and Adventive Moths reviews, analysing the most significant events of the preceding year.
