Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everybody loves a ladybug, and no one is more passionate about these spotted creatures than John Acorn, who has produced this, the first regional ladybug field guide in North America. With comprehensive maps, colour photographs, and illustrations of 75 different species, Acorn educates readers on the beauty and diversity of ladybugs in Alberta. He also explains the impact that introduced species have had on these remarkably diverse insects. Professional entomologists, bug-loving kids, and nature-walk enthusiasts will find ladybug identification enjoyable and rewarding with Acorn’s combination of expertise and humour.

Book News Annotation:

In the third volume of his series, Acorn (U. of Alberta) presents the only popular guide to ladybugs in any region of North America. He describes a ladybug's life and the historic and current study of ladybugs in Alberta, and discusses introduced ladybugs and conservation. The final chapters survey the lesser and the larger of the 75 species, providing information on the meaning and pronunciation of the names, identification, distribution, and other matters. Color photographs abound, and a complete gallery of ladybugs with relevant page numbers acts as an index. Distributed in the US by Michigan State University Press.

About the Author

John Acorn, a lifelong Albertan, lives in Edmonton with his wife Dena and their two boys, Jesse and Benjamin.

In 2008, he received NSERC's Michael Smith Award for Science Promotion.
