Concise guide to the insect orders and to what makes insects special and successful with illustrations by Richard Lewington. The book is in three sections: a straightforward introduction to insect biology; a section on field work; and an order-by-order catalogue of the insects giving essential facts and details of life-histories, points peculiar to that order, and so on. It includes a pictoral aid to identification of the orders, key references, and specially commissioned large clear illustrations.
This book should be as indispensable to students as to amateur entomologists, ecologists, and nature enthusiasts ... It is to be hoped that this excellent value reference book will achieve a wide circulation. Galathea 2001
