Abstract:

This volume provides an introduction to more than 400 of the most conspicuous insects and to about 70 spiders, mites and ticks, and related forms that live in Southern California. With color photographs or drawings of all but a few species, the text describes the size and most striking physical characteristics of adults and immature stages and gives information on locomotion and behavior, offensive and defensive maneuvers, mating rituals, food preferences, nests and traps, and noises and scents. The specific habitat and general geographic range of each insect are included, as are lore and superstition regarding some notorious species. This work also contains information on basic biology, habitats, collecting, raising, and conservation of Southern California's insects and spiders.
