Insects: Their Natural History and Diversity: With a Photographic Guide to Insects of Eastern North America


Reviews of the first edition of Insects starred review]"This book is simply bigger, prettier, and more comprehensive than any previous publication on insects." --Library Journal

"An incredibly important, masterfully written and profusely illustrated work that belongs in the library of every field biologist, educator, student and naturalist . . . a book that is destined to become a natural history classic". --Arthur V Evans, Research Collaborator, Dept. of Entomology, Smithsonian Institution

Called "a milestone in insect photography" and "simply bigger, prettier and more comprehensive than any previous publication on insects," Professor Stephen Marshall's Insects is now in a new edition, with more than 500 changes to reflect the latest scientific findings since it was first published in 2006.

It is a comprehensive reference on insects featuring an easy identification guide using 28 picture keys, 4000 color photographs taken in the field (not pinned specimens), expert advice on observing insects, and more.

Insects enables readers and starting entomologists to identify most insects quickly and accurately. More than 50 pages of picture keys lead to appropriate chapters and specific photos, to confirm identification. The keys are surprisingly comprehensive and easy for non-specialists to use.

Features include:

  • detailed chapters covering insect orders and insect families
  • a brief examination of common families of related terrestrial arthropods
  • 4000+ color photographs showing typical behaviors and key characteristics
  • three indexes--common family names, photographs, general index
  • expert guidance on observing, collecting and photographing insects
  • new remarks on declining habitat and threats to biodiversity.
  • This book has been widely and thoroughly praised. It is now ready for a new generation of new, and lifetime students of entomology.
