Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This small and beautiful pictorial encyclopedia of 550 little creatures<-->29 orders of insects and a selection of spiders and other terrestrial arthropods<-->highlights each family's chief characteristics, including memorable physical traits, life cycle, habitat, and larval stages. An introduction explains what an insect is and provides a practical photographic identification key to the main insect groups, which in turn guides users to the correct insect. Pages are laid out like a word-processing screen in which order, family, size, number of species, and feeding habits always appear in color-coded, easy-to-locate top and bottom margins. McGavin is a lecturer in zoology at Oxford. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
