The origin, etymology, part of speech and definition of each term and phrase are all provided, including the language, meaning or root of each term and constitutent parts.
The common names of insects, their scientific binomen and tazonomic classification are provided, with diagnoses of pest species in many cases. All insect order, suborder, superfamily, subfamily names are given, together with diagnostic features of orders and families. With new and updated terms, particularly in molecular biology, phylogeny and spatial technology.
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"
