About this book

This pocket-sized book is an essential guide to insects, providing comprehensive detail on around 240 of the most easily noticed British species selected from a range of orders and families. Each species is divided into simple sections covering general information followed by it's flight period, habitat and similar species. This easy-to-use book is as visually impressive as it is useful in the field, with many stunning full-page and double-page images supporting the authoritative text. The introduction covers the characteristics of an insect, where to find them as well as the conservation work in demand around the world. Printed on quality paper, the paperback format with flaps adds to the book's durability in the field and provides build-in page markers for quick reference.
