Revue de presse

"Importantly, the text, illustrations and features such as text Boxes are written and presented in such a stimulating way as to represent an appealing outline of entomology to undergraduates, amateurs, or specialists in related fields including conservation, and the book comes with a high recommendation ." (J Insect Conserv, 2010)  

Quatrième de couverture

This established, popular textbook provides a stimulating and comprehensive introduction to the insects, the animals that represent over half of the planet′s biological diversity. In this new fourth edition, the authors introduce the key features of insect structure, function, behavior, ecology and classification, placed within the latest ideas on insect evolution. Much of the book is organised around major biological themes – living on the ground, in water, on plants, in colonies, and as predators, parasites/parasitoids and prey. A strong evolutionary theme is maintained throughout. The ever–growing economic importance of insects is emphasized in new boxes on insect pests, and in chapters on medical and veterinary entomology, and pest management. Updated ′taxoboxes′ provide concise information on all aspects of each of the 27 major groupings (orders) of insects. The authors maintain the tradition of clarity and conciseness set by earlier editions, and the text is illustrated profusely with specially commissioned hand–drawn figures. The illustrations and the informative text aim to encourage the scientific study of insects, either as a vocation or as a hobby. The book is intended as the principal text for students studying entomology, as well as a reference text for undergraduate and graduate courses in fields of ecology, agriculture, fisheries and forestry, palaeontology, zoology, and medical and veterinary science.

HASH(0xa0d0a744) étoiles sur 5 A great advanced text on insects 7 juin 2005
Par Hallstatt Prince - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
(Four and a half stars)

Although this is a fairly technical college text I recommend it to everyone with more than a passing interest in entomology.

The author goes into great detail into the subject and yet with a little work anyone should be able to make it through this text.

Do not be intimidated by the jargon as one will eventaully become familair with it.The illustrations are very helpful.

Aquatic and juvenile insects are not neglected here as they are so often in other texts.

So many children have a passing interest in entomology. Speaking from personal experience as a child for a long time after memorizing one of the Zim guides from cover to cover I thought I knew all that needed to be known about insects. A parent aware of one's child's intellectual development should know when it is time to give their kids more advanced books. There are certainly books that bridge the gap between the Zim guides ad this boo k (The Peterson Field Guide to Insects for example)and although I certainly do not recommend this book for a child the ambitious young adult should be able to get a lot out of this book.

HASH(0xa18a73fc) étoiles sur 5 Truly an "outline" 25 septembre 2009
Par Beth Hughes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book covers a LOT of ground regarding insects. Some areas are very informative. In fact, most of it gives an excellent, basic understanding of the various topics, like insect sensory organs. My only concern is that it moves very fast. Some areas of importance are glanced over, and the only reason I can understand them (like systematics) is because I have previous knowledge in that area. This is NOT a beginner's book. I would put this at grad student level for sure. But if you have already taken multiple insect classes with more taylored books, this one would be superfluous. The only reason it helps me is because I have had two insects taxonomy classes, but I don't know much about insect physiology. So with that said, I can't really say who this book is best suited for, other than people in the same situation as I am.

HASH(0xa23b3708) étoiles sur 5 Great beggining entomology book 25 mars 2012
Par O. Long - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is great for learning entomology. It has the chapters divided into a sequence that is easy to follow and it has many text boxes with extra information. If you are going to classify insects though order the Triplehorn and Johnson book to go along with it. Also while the book and illustrations are great, there are only photographs in the begging of the book, the rest of the illustrations (a large majority of them) are drawing, that while well done are not as nice as photographs or micrographs. If your interest is in morphology or molecular biology then this book is lacking as it is mostly an overview of the insects.

HASH(0xa186eb4c) étoiles sur 5 Textbook and Class 28 janvier 2013
Par JFletch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book combined with a class on different insects and arachnids made the learning experience real and I plan to keep the textbook from here on out as a reference to the information leaned in the class. The Insects is a great supplement to a class but even for independent study it is effective and informative.

HASH(0xa1451108) étoiles sur 5 Excellent introductory textbook 21 août 2012
Par Raymond J. Hicks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This textbook was reccomended to me by a friend who said it was a great starting place into entomology. It has helped me understand important principles in a very clear and concise manner. My interest in this subject is only recreational, but even still this book introduces the scientific terms in a manner that is entry level, and then progresses that knowledge as you procede through into the more specific areas of knowledge. This book covers a wide variety of insects and breaks them down according to their lifestyles making it easy for someone like me to access the knowledge within it's covers.

This book also discusses the many uses for entomology, beyond that of identification of insects. It shows you the applications of the knowledge you are gaining, and that is very important I think.

This book and a field guide is all you need to really get a working understanding of entomology and its uses as a science. This book gives you the theory behind the insects and why they are the way they are and is an excellent purchase even for me, the hobbyist.
