Abstract:

Triplehorn and Johnson combine a taxonomic approach to the study of insects with updated coverage of insect biology, evolution, and insect phylogeny for this seventh edition of the text. Many new families of insects have been added throughout the book. Some of these families reflect revised classifications, but many are the result of the discovery of new groups within the US and Canada, particularly from the New World tropics. There is also new information on collection methods, such as the use of the Global Positioning System.
