A detailed account of the biology of the Psocoptera is given by New (1987) and Mockford (1993). Thornton (1985) discusses the zoogeography and ecology of the arboreal forms. The phylogeny and classification of the order are considered by Smithers (1972). New (1987) and Smithers (1990) provide keys to the world families and genera, respectively. New (1974) has a key to the British species, and Smithers (1991) and Mockford (1993) keys to the Australian families and North American species, respectively.
