About this book

Australia has a rich diversity of phasmids - otherwise known as stick and leaf insects. Most of them are endemic, few have been studied and new species continue to be found. Stick insects are, by far, Australia's longest insects - some of them reach up to 300 mm in body length, and more than 500 mm including outstretched legs. Many stick insects are very colourful, and some have quite elaborate, defensive behaviour. Increasingly they are being kept as 'pets'.

"The Complete Field Guide to Stick and Leaf Insects of Australia" is the first book on Australian phasmids for nearly 200 years. It includes photographs and distribution maps for all species, notes on their ecology and biology as well as identification keys suitable for novices or professionals. It covers all stick and leaf insects found in Australia; clear photos and line drawings; easy-to-use identification keys; and, notes on collecting and studying phasmids.
