The stats reveal that not a lot of people use this page which explains why i have been so slack in keeping it up to date. However since last time I have added nearly 200 images with thumbnails, added a page on Cicadas, done quite a few reviews, upgraded the front page to include a drop down menu and updated a number of other pages as well.

September 6th 1997
Mostly for the last few months I have been putting my time into book reviews (having got the books from the publishers I am beholden to do the reviews so please do read them), trying to get sponsorship, and just keeping the site going. The attempt to gain sponsorship has taken up lot of time with little result, it looks like the site will stay alive even if nobody is looking after it for a while. I am currently writing up my thesis and preparing for a conferance so maybe more will get typed up in October. Thanks for visiting.
March 16th 1997
A new care sheet on keeping Scorpions, is now available. I have upgraded the Collembola Page which was the oldest unchanged page on the site, Collembola are what I am studying hence it was the first page I wrote but each successive page got bigger and bigger and the Collembola page was looking very small in comparison with some of my later efforts, but now it looks better, I have also reviewed Stephen Hopkin's book on them. A couple more book reviews of some delightful buggy children's stories have gone up as well
February 2nd 1997
The December and January visitors books are now up as are new pages on Shield Bugs, Lace Bugs, Tarantula Mythology, Raising British Butterflies 01 and 02, Spiders webs and evolution, the Hemiptera page has been upgraded and now includes a list of superfamilies. There have been a number of book reviews over the last few weeks, do tell the publishers where you found out about the books if you decide to buy any.

I have put something up on Centipedes, which should help those who have been recently asking questions about them.

October 14th 1996
The Solitary Bees page now has text as well as images. I have started doing book reviews, a useful way of augmenting my library, so if you by any of the books reviewed there do tell them you read about them on GEHP. They are mostly taxonomic works from Pensoft and Fitzgerald so far but I am hoping more will be available soon.
September 29th 1996
The Symphyta (Sawflies and friends) now have their own page. Unfortunately all the image files were lost during reformatting my PC, and the floppies have gone missing, it will be a while but I will get them done again. I have updated the links on most of the Hymenopteran pages while I was at it.
September 24th 1996
I have finally got around to getting a question button up on the button board. And My visitors Book Record for August is now available.

The PSG and Phasmida pages have been improved with 10 lovelly new Scanning Electron Micrographs of Stick-Insect ova (eggs) supplied by Klaus Lipinski.
September 2nd 1996
New front page, this is now a 'frame' with a set of buttons at the top for those that didn't see it on the way in.
A whole new section has been added to the spider page on household spiders in Britain.
The Solitary Wasps page has a new couple of paragraphs on the BeeWolf Philanthus triangulum, as well as 4 photos of it, 3 of Cerceris arenaria, and 1 of Ammophila sabulosa Ground Beetles has been added to the list of Coleoptera pages.
I have corrected typos and made small changes to about 35 files, only another 70 to check.
There are new images of varying quality on the Orthoptera and Coccinelidae pages.
Three new pages have been added to the list of care sheets, these are on Ground Beetles, Collembola and Woodlice, this last includes a couple of simple experiments suitable for schools.
I have added a number of new subdirectories to the ./images/ directory, and moved some files around, I hope this doesn't cause anybody any discomfort reguarding links to the images but the 'animals' directory was getting unmanageable.
I think all the links at the bottom of the pages that pointed back to the front page work now. (Why don't you tell me these things??)
