Editorial Reviews

Review

"The most comprehensive and best researched introductory entomology text available today. The functional insect key is an excellent feature that allows students to use one book for both lecture and laboratory."--Lee Dyer, Mesa State College

"[Wlell done with good coverage of insect biology, morphology, life systems, and diversity. Provides good treatment of orders with keys down to family level. Very good photographs and drawings."--Charles T. Allen, University of Arkansas-Monticello

"Includes a fine treatment of form and function. Important assets are numerous line drawings, BandW photos, and a very attractive color-photo section."--Vaughn M. Rundquist, Montana State University

"Best edition yet!"--David H. Kistner, California State University, Chico

"An excellent introductory textbook. I will use it as recommended reading for students in upper-division courses who have little or no entomological background."--L.E. Ehler, University of California, Davis

"Reveals the fascinating aspects of insects, pictorially and in text, that are generally appreciated only by the enthusiast. The book provides the best photographs, in general, I have ever seen in a text....A wonderful book for the young and old!"--Peter W. Price, Northen Arizona University

"Just the book that I have been looking for. The writing style is engaging..."--Francis Drummond, University of Maine

"A good, comprehensive text that includes taxonomic keys. It relieves the burden on students of buying more than one book to complete the course."--John Rumph, Lewis and Clark State College

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
very interesting book for entomology in which the morphology of insects represented fluently and descriptive. I loved how it was organized and easy to read. Very helpful to follow lab work in class as its information about insects lead you also through the knowledge you are gaining in the laboratory.
