About this book

The rich and diverse environment of the Pacific Northwest provides habitats for more than 28,000 species of insects. From coast to mountains, from wetlands to high desert, there is an abundance of insect life awaiting anyone with a keen eye and a measure of curiosity.

Insects of the Pacific Northwest describes more than 450 species of common, easily visible insects found from southwestern British Columbia to northern California. It covers the main insect orders, with an emphasis on beetles and butterflies and moths, and also includes a sampling of common non-insect terrestrial invertebrates, such as spiders and snails.

More than 600 photographs, a series of visual keys to orders and families, and a clear color-coded layout make this handy field guide an exceptionally useful reference for biologists and other working professionals, naturalists, students, hikers, gardeners, and explorers of this fascinating region.

For many years he has conducted classes and workshops or appeared as a guest speaker for various organizations and at universities and community colleges, among other venues. His topics include insects and plants, in particular, native species; gardening with native and non-native plants; and garden insects and disease pests.
