Most literature on Protura is taxonomic. Accounts of the biology of this group are given by Ewing (1940), Nosek (1973), and Imidate (1991). Nosek (1973) provides a key to the European species and Nosek (1978) a key to the world genera; Ewing (1940) deals with the North American forms; and Imidate (1991) with the Australian families.
