Book Review


Excerpt: It is a pleasant surprise to find a book that can effectively communicate much information about insects to the lay public, amateur entomologist, and professional entomologist alike. In straight-forward language the author gives genuine insight into the morphology, physiology, behavior, evolution, and adaptation of insects. These areas are not treated as unrelated topics but are skillfully blended into a meaningful whole. The text is supported liberally with pertinent facts, clear drawings, and many photographs of remarkable quality. The lack of obvious mistakes indicates that editing has been carried out carefully.
