Encyclopedia of Insects by Vincent Resh

Insects have been on planet Earth for approximately 400 million years. That predates Homo Sapiens by over 399 million years (Homo Sapiens having evolved by about 200,000 years ago). It’s a reasonable guess that the creepy crawlies will be here long after human extinction.

Should you become fascinated by insects, you’ll want a splendid reference work to hand. This work by Resh and Carde is regarded as comprehensive, useful, and up-to-date. Expanded sections in forensic entomology, biotechnology and Drosphila, offer beautifully researched content across 300 topics. Articles contributed by over 260 top entomologists provide definitive facts regarding all insects from ants, beetles, and butterflies to yellow jackets, zoraptera, and zygentoma.

You’ll be treated to chapters on bedbugs, Ekbom Syndrome, Genomics, and Vinegaroons. The text is graced by 1,000 full-colour photographs, figures and tables, whilst a full glossary, 1,700 cross-references, and 3,000 bibliographic entries intensify the pleasure. It’s a work no budding entomologist should be without.
