Abstract: This website offers a variety of resources on the insect order Diptera, or true flies. The Diptera comprise about 125,000 described species worldwide and are of huge importance to man and the environment. They are much maligned due to their roles as blood feeders, vectors of disease, agents of myiasis, consumers and contaminators of human food, insidious invaders of our homes, and uninvited guests at outdoor activities. However, they are at least as important and beneficial as plant pollinators, food for higher organisms, plant and animal decomposers, and natural and biological control agents.
