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 organized 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 inserts 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 28 major groupings (orders) of insects, plus the three orders of non-insect hexapods."--Jacket." ;
