The Encyclopedia of Entomology brings together the talents of over 350 distinguished entomologists from 36 countries to provide a detailed, global overview of insects and their close relatives, including taxonomy, behavior, ecology, physiology, history, and management. All the major groups of arthropods are treated, as are many important families and individual species. The Encyclopedia also covers physiology, genetics, ecology, behavior, insect relationships with people, medical entomology, and pest management. Detailed listings are also complemented by more than 1100 illustrations. Featured in this important work are unique biographical sketches of the hundreds of entomologists who have made important contributions to the discipline since its origin.Presented in three volumes and including a fully searchable and easily accessed online version, the Encyclopedia of Entomology is the most complete reference work in this field. In addition to being a must for Entomology departments around the world, the Encyclopedia also serves as a handy reference for scientists and students in related areas of science such as agronomy, animal science, botany, ecology, human disease, evolutionary biology, forestry, genetics, horticulture, parasitology, toxicology and zoology.
