Photographic Atlas of Entomology and Guide to Insect Identification
Feline Press, 2000 - Entomology - 174 pages
Although photo atlases in other fields of the life sciences have long been available to aid students in their studies, there has never been one for entomology. One reason for this is the great number of photos necessary for such a book to be of any value. Fortunately for students, Dr. Castner has spent the past 25 years photographing insects with his work appearing in everything from National Geographic to Ranger Rick. Dr. Castner's experience in teaching and working with students has allowed him to produce a work that exactly addresses their needs. His Photographic Atlas of Entomology is simple, thorough, user-friendly, and very reasonably priced. It should be a great help to any entomology student, as well as to the professors teaching entomology courses.
