Field Guide to Insects of South Africa

This is the first comprehensive field guide to the insect fauna of South Africa, with detailed descriptions of over 1 200 of the most common, most economically and ecologically important, and most interesting and attractive insects in the region. An introductory chapter discusses the insect body, life history, classification and distribution patterns and relatives of southern African insects. The easy-to-read text is matched with superb photography. Arranged in their Orders, accounts cover identification, biology, distribution and related species, and are accompanied by a colour photograph of the species or family. It also touches on collecting, displaying and curating insects. This colourful guide will be of great value to entomologists, both amateur and professional, as well as to students, nature conservation officers, game rangers, gardeners, farmers, tourists and anyone with an interest in natural history. In the Noma Award for Publishing in Africa 2003, Field Guide to Insects of South Africa was one of the three titles singled out for Honourable Mention (putting it in the top 6 of 113 entries). "A project on an enormous scale, the organisation is superb; the presentation of the information is outstanding, and powerful in its subtlety. The photographs are consistently beautiful, educational, informative and spectacular."
