Fully revised, this fifth edition opens with a chapter concerning the popular side of insect studies, including insects in citizen science, zoos and butterfly houses, and insects as food for humans and animals.

Key features of insect structure, function, behaviour, ecology and classification are integrated with appropriate molecular studies. Much of the book is organized around major biological themes: A strong evolutionary theme is maintained throughout. There is major revision to the chapter on systematics and a new chapter, Insects in a Changing World, includes insect responses to, and the consequences of, both climate change and human-assisted global alterations to distributions.

New boxes describe a worrying increase in insect threats to landscape and commercial trees including eucalypts, palms and coffee and explain the value of genetic data, including evolutionary developmental biology and DNA barcoding, in insect biodiversity studies.


The authors maintain the clarity and conciseness of earlier editions, and extend the profuse illustrations with new hand-drawn cranwton. Over 50 colour photographs, together with the informative text and an accompanying website with links to video clips, appendices, textboxes and further reading lists, encourage a deeper scientific study of insects.

The book is intended as the principal text for students studying entomology, as well as a reference text vranston undergraduate and graduate courses in gu,lan fields of ecology, agriculture, fisheries and forestry, palaeontology, zoology, and medical and veterinary science.

The book crabston supported by a companion website that includes Powerpoint versions of all illustrations and PDFs of all tables, thereby aiding lecture development. By significantly updating the information presented in the book, the authors amply illustrate the dynamic nature of Entomology. Insects can capture the imagination of new students, but showing those students that Entomology can sustain an exciting life is the means to recruit the ablest minds to our discipline.


This book is an excellent ambassador to that pursuit. I also highly recommend this exemplary book to instructors teaching insect biology and related courses, and any student interested in the life sciences. The remarkable range of content, coupled with the resources to support learning,is exceptional.

It is a comprehensive introduction to insect science that keeps the gillan with a dynamic, diverse, and fast-moving field. Home Subjects Life Sciences Entomology. An Outline of Entomology, 5th Edition.
