The text is meticulous in its descriptions of individual species’ life cycles; it describes where and when the insects lay their eggs; the average time it takes them to hatch; the average number of molts, etc. Sharp color photographs accompany the text on every other page. This lucid, well-organized introduction will serve as an excellent [addition to any collection]."
