About this book

The Encyclopedia of Entomology brings together the expertise of over 450 distinguished entomologists from 40 countries to provide a global overview of insects and their close relatives. Designed as an introduction to this important and fascinating group of animals, The Encyclopedia of Entomology also provides detailed treatment of insect classification, behavior, ecology, genetics and evolution, physiology, and management, and links to the most important literature on the subject.

All the major groups are treated, as are many important families and species. Special emphasis is directed to insect relationships with people, medical entomology, biological control and insect pathology, and the entomologists who have contributed significantly to the advancement of the discipline. This edition is fully indexed, and also includes over 120 color plates showing the beauty and diversity of insects from around the globe.

Presented in four volumes, The Encyclopedia of Entomology is the most complete reference work in this field. It is a handy desk-top reference for entomologists, but also a valuable source of information for scientists and students in related areas of science such as agronomy, botany, disease biology, ecology, evolutionary biology, forestry, genetics, horticulture, parasitology, toxicology, and zoology.
