Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"The text is abundantly illustrated with photographs and line drawings. The colour plates are generally very good and highly attractive . . should be in all institutional libraries whose clientele have interests in entomology or pest management." (T. R. New, Journal of Insect Conservation, Vol. 13 (2), 2009)"This second edition of Capinera's Encyclopedia of Entomology draws on the expertise of over 450 contributors . . Black-and-white illustrations and photographs are used throughout the work to good effect. . Overall this is a succinct, clearly written introduction to the field of entomology. It will appeal to both those new to the field as well as those seeking more detailed information and further reading. . I think this will be a useful reference tool . ."
