Please note, this is a reissue of the New Holland Concise Insect Guide, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.
This 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 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 artworks aid quick and accurate identification, and make Bloomsbury Concise Insect Guide an indispensable reference in the field as well as at home. To protect it against the elements in the field, Bloomsbury Concise Insect Guide is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet. Also included is a fold-out insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing comparisons between similar species.
Renowned natural history artists Sandra Doyle and Stuart Carter painted the plates. Text by Nicholas Hammond. Endorsed by The Wildlife Trusts.
