About this book

Thousands of bugs and over a quarter of a million beetle species are known to man. These two Orders of Insecta perfectly adapt to environments as diverse as desert or mountain peak, marshland or garden, lake or woodland. But as readily as they are seen, how easy is it to tell a bug from a beetle? This book aids in the identification recognising the differences by clearly explaining their taxonomy and life cycle. The Identifier is separated into 2 sections detailing the general characteristics of each family. Each species' entry has information on individual habitats and feeding, with at-a-glance symbols for easy reference in the field. Over one hundred species are represented, accompanied by spectacular photographs making this compact study guide an essential companion.
