The traditional order-by-order arrangement of other texts is replaced by a systematic synopsis of each insect order at the end of the appropriate ecological/behavioural chapter. The theoretical framework of cladistics and current evolutionary and behavioural theory underlies the text. Over 200 beautiful drawings of insects, many as seen under natural conditions, will encourage the rewarding study of entomology, whether as a vocation or as a hobby.
This book is suitable for students contemplating entomology as a career, and may be used as a principal text for higher education courses in which the study of insects is prominent. These range from mainstream entomology to agricultural science, forestry, zoology and medical and veterinary science.
