Publisher Comments:

Whether you are a novice or experienced collector, student, farmer, or weekend gardener, you will find "Simon & Schuster's Guide to Insects" a highly authoritative, startlingly beautiful field guide to 350 insect species commonly found throughout North America. The introduction to the text explains the anatomy and behaviors of these amazingly diverse creatures, as well as the easiest, most efficient manner in which to preserve and mount your insect collection. Each entry is stunningly complemented by one or more color photographs and contains information about the habitat, distribution, length, recognition marks, and other pertinent details concerning the particular species. A three-part visual key provides instantaneous identification of the insect's primary activity, its habitat, and its ecological significance. This is an indispensable reference tool for anyone fascinated by the insect world.
