"Each of the seven chapters is devoted to a specific taxonomic phylum and further divided alphabetically by popular name. These segments engagingly and accessibly explain species activity and impact, while incorporating enlarged and detailed black-and-white photographs. Sidebars offer comprehensive species lists or additional information on unusual pest traits. Further reading lists follow both chapter segments and sidebar texts in this wonderfully vivid and highly informative text."
