About this book

This is the first time that a single book has attempted to cover the whole of the fossil history of insects so comprehensively. The volume embraces the history of insect palaeontology, methods for studying fossils, the taphonomic processes leading to their formation, the diagnostic features of all insect orders, both extant and extinct, the major fossils of each order, and the implications that can be drawn from the palaeoentomological record about past ecology and climates.


Preface. Acknowledgements. Contributors. 1. Introduction to Palaeoentomology. 2. Class Insecta Linne, 1758. The Insects. 3. General Features of the Insect History. 4. Appendix: Alphabetic List of Selected Insect Fossil Sites. 5. References. Indexes. Figure Captions.
