British Insects is destined to become the standard reference and the starting point for any investigation of the British insect fauna. In this introduction to this book on insects, Peter Barnard makes a very good point about sharing of knowledge. Science Spin, 1 January 2012). Generally, the book is very readable, beautifully illustrated and very informative for those who are not primarily interested in morphology, phylogeny and evolutionary history.
The Royal Entomological Society (RES) and Wiley-Blackwell are proudto present this landmark publication, celebrating the wonderfuldiversity of the insects of the British Isles, and the work of theRES (founded 1833).
This book is the only modern systematic account of all 558families of British insects, covering not just the large andfamiliar groups that are included in popular books, but even thesmallest and least known. It is beautifully illustratedthroughout in full colour with photographs by experienced wildlifephotographers to show the range of diversity, both morphologicaland behavioural, among the 24,000 species.
All of the 6,000 genera of British insects are listed andindexed, along with all the family names and higher groups. Thereis a summary of the classification, biology and economic importanceof each family together with further references for detailedidentification. All species currently subject to legal protectionin the United Kingdom are also listed.
The Royal Entomological Society is one of the oldest and mostprestigious of its kind in the world. It is the leadingorganisation for professional entomologists and its main aim hasalways been the promotion of knowledge about insects. The RES beganits famous Handbooks for the Identification of BritishInsects in 1949, and new works in that series continue to bepublished. The Royal Entomological Society Book of BritishInsects has been produced to demonstrate the on-goingcommitment of the RES to educate and encourage each generation tostudy these fascinating creatures.
This is a key reference work for serious students of entomologyand amateur entomologists, as well as for professionals who need acomprehensive source of information about the insect groups of theBritish Isles they may be less familiar with.
