Claiming to be New Zealand's most comprehensive insect photo guide, this excellent new book showcases the variety and beauty of New Zealand's unique insect fauna. It certainly covers more NZ insects than any currently-in-print, and possibly more than any book ever written. It includes over 650 life-size colour photographs of native and introduced insects from home, garden, forest, mountain, streams and lakes. It has been well researched and indexed, and pulls together a great deal of insect information into one handy and portable source. M#ori insect names are included where available, along with a glossary and a list of other useful resources. Written by the author of the award winning Life-Size Guide to Native Trees, this guide includes his usual quickfind key for practical identifications.
