THE BIOLOGY OF MILLIPEDES by Stephen P King, John T Miele

ISBN-10: 0198576994; ISBN-13: 978-0198576990

Millipedes are common components of the leaf-litter fauna of most terrestrial environments. The Biology of Millipedes is the first single-volume review of this important group and covers their ecology, behaviour, physiology, and evolution. This book is essential reading for terrestrial ecologists, zoologists, and students taking courses in invertebrate biology. Introductory chapters consider millipede taxonomy and phylogeny, basic anatomy, locomotion, and ecomorphology. Later chapters review feeding and digestion, metabolism, nerves, and neurosecretion, together with all aspects of millipedes in decomposition processes, and their role as pests. The authors provide an extremely comprehensive bibliography of research papers and literature.

YOUR FIRST MILLIPEDE AND COCKROACH by Nick Baker

ISBN 185279082-2

Everything you need to know to start with Millipedes and Cockroaches.

iloveflowerbeetles note:

update; more is known since this book was published in 1997 – for example, the tiny brown mites that live on the giant black millys are harmless and are indeed essential for the wellbeing of your pet milly; these friendly mites clean and keep the millepede healthy! – and – this is a slowly growing hobby, gaining popularity with more breeds of millepede being discovered every year.  DO NOT (as the book suggests) remove the harmless brown mites from your millipede – it is only the white mites that are dangerous!

I found that copies of this book (still a nice little book and a good read regarding maintenance and fun facts) are available 2nd hand, cheaply off amazon uk (link provided below).
