About this book

This beautifully illustrated pocket field guide is packed with information on the marvellous variety of insects that inhabits Britain and the near Continent. It includes more than 180 species, including dragonflies, bees, wasps, beetles, bugs and flies, all of which are illustrated with superb full-colour artworks. A concise written account covering size, description, habitat, distribution, foodplants and habits appears on the same page as the illustrations for each species. The easy-to-follow layouts and superb artworks aid quick and accurate identification, and make this book an indispensable reference in the field as well as at home. It is compact enough to fit in the pocket, yet packed with essential information for the nature enthusiast. To protect it against the elements in the field, the book is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet. Also included is a fold-out insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing comparisons between similar species. It is suitable for wildlife enthusiasts wanting to identify insects in Britain and other parts of northern Europe; people who want portable yet authoritative wildlife books to take on nature walks or to keep in their home or car; and, both adults and children - part of the ultimate collectable nature book series.
