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.
Based in Canberra, Paul Zborowski is an entomologist and photographer who spends his time researching and illustrating invertebrates in Australia and in other locations around the world. He has a passion for presenting the macro details of nature to a wide audience and has written and illustrated 12 nature books using the resources of his image bank, www.close-up-photolibrary.com. He is a field-based scientist, spending long periods undertaking research in the field, and is also a sometimes teacher, both of science and photography.
