I have read many books on insects but this is only the second rigorous text book on Entomology. It is exactly what I have been looking for (including being somewhat over my head). I describes insect needs, behavior, communications and interactions with other insects of the same and different species and plants. I am only up to page 143 but there is no end to the variety of relationships and communications that have evolved between plants, insects herbivores, parasitoids, hyper parasitoids and predators. There are only a few photographs but there are many examples illustrating what is being covered which cite specific species.

This book does a great job of covering some major themes in insect ecology. It takes excellent approaches to explaining and interconnecting concepts within the broader applications of ecology. If you are interested in insect-herbivore interactions, those chapters cover the material extensively. I am planning to use this in an advanced undergraduate course on insect ecology. I highly recommend this new book over the others available in the market because it does so much more than just reiterate typical general ecology principles by giving examples on insects.

I've gone through the first six chapters so far, and have found it to be a very thorough text. The authors did a great job keeping the text's flow smooth, making it an easy read for those interested in the subject matter. I may present further statements after completing the text.

Very informative and thorough with plenty of useful examples. Highly recommended for prospective ecologists, either as a strong hobby or studying at the collegiate level.
