Media reviews

A Dictionary of Entomology is the most complete reference of its kind available today... This is an extraordinary work of the highest scholarship, and this reviewer cannot find any reasonable fault with it. Abelardo C Moncayo, American Entomologist "Every serious entomologist should have a copy of this dictionary, and physicians and veterinarians dealing with insect-transmitted infections need to have a copy to hand". M W Service, Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology"
