Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

National Wildlife Federationand#8217;s new all-photographic field guide to North American insects, spiders, and related species, is the most up-to-date of its kind, and lets both amateur and expert naturalists identify more than 940 species quickly and accurately. More than 2,000 close-up color photographs by leading nature photographers reveal the field marks that distinguish each creature, and the clear and concise text that accompanies each image describes the range, habitat, life cycle, and behavior. Budding entomologists will be inspired to explore further with the detailed information on starting a collection, planting an arthropod garden, keeping insects and spiders in captivity, and learning the techniques of macro photography. The unique waterproof cover makes it ideal for use outdoors.

Book News Annotation:

Approximately 1,600 close-up color photos accompany text and captions relating to measurements, range, identification, habitat, and features.

Introductions to numbers of species, physical characteristics, natural history, reproduction, and development are provided. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
