About this book

Fully revised edition of Chinery's classic work. Not to be confused with Chinery's Collins Guide to the Insects of Britain and Western Europe, this book is a discursive introduction to entomology, useful for identification, but with an equivalent content on biology and taxonomics, whereas the Collins Guide is a straight identification guide.
