Featuring a durable vinyl binding and over 700 full-color identification photographs organized visually by color and shape, the National Audubon Society Field Guide to Insects and Spiders is the very best companion for any out of doors excursion. Descriptive text includes measurements, diagnostic details, and information on habitat, range, feeding habits, sounds or songs, flight period, web construction, life cycle, behaviors, folklore, and environmental affect. An illustrated key to the insect orders and detailed drawings of the parts of insects, spiders, and butterflies supplement this extensive coverage.
There are about 100,000 kinds of insects in North The us, so obviously they may be able to’t have a field guide in the same way the 650 species of birds do: something both portable and complete. The National Audubon Society has produced a remarkably useful compromise. This guide has photographs and descriptions of 550 insect species and 60 kinds of spiders. The various families of arthropods on the continent are covered, as are the entire most common species. It’s a very useful resource for any North American naturalist, and your only option for an adult who is not an expert entomologist. –Mary Ellen Curtin
