Over 2000 of the most commonly observed and most distinctive insect species of Britain and western Europe, from all orders and most families, are illustrated in Insects of Britain and Western Europe, making it an essential pocket guide. The text summarises key identification points, and introductory sections for each group give useful guidelines on the characteristics of the orders, families and genera covered. Insects of Britain and Western Europe is the most comprehensive guide available on the insects of this region and will be of great use to all naturalists with an interest in insect life.
For the second edition the text has been extensively revised, and both factual and taxonomic information has been updated. Furthermore, illustrations have been revised, and four new invasive alien species have been added.
