Identify insects from all the major insect groups.
Whether you're an amateur insect enthusiast, a student or entomologist, this updated and revised edition of A Field Guide to Insects in Australia will help you identify insects from all the major insect groups. It will enable you to differentiate between a dragonfly and a damselfly or a cricket and a grasshopper. You'll find cockroaches, termites, praying mantids, beetles, cicadas, moths, butterflies, ants and bees. More than 250 colour photographs show the insects in their natural habitat. The line drawings clearly illustrate subtle differences where identification is tricky.

This practical knowledge is available on a consultancy basis to documentary film makers - providing a location search, subject behaviour & capture, and studio and field set design and building. Paul has worked with diverse film crews from the BBC Bristol Wildlife Unit, NHK TV and Tokyo TV of Japan, Discovery Channel of America, Wildvisuals and Quest of Australia, and produces reference, field guides and children’s books.
