From the reviews of the second edition:

“This highly anticipated second edition … is a very complete review of animal behavior concepts related to insects. … The book includes 28 detailed case studies that explore several specific situations (laboratory and/or field research), along with the methodology used. … contains 173 black-and-white figures and 45 color plates. The Matthews’ highly didactic writing style makes this book useful to researchers, students, and even laypersons interested in the topic. … Summing Up: Recommended. All libraries.” (J. M. Gonzalez, Choice, Vol. 47 (11), July, 2010)

“For anyone studying or interested in animal behaviour or insects, this is a must-have reference book. … Each chapter is … split into sub-divisions that help locate relevant information quickly. … Numerous case studies include a handful new to this edition, focusing on research relevant to the associated text. … As a comprehensive reference book, I would recommend this text to teachers and undergraduates in the field of animal biology, ecology, entomology and anyone interested in insects or animal behaviour.” (Janet Preece, The Biologist, Vol. 58 (2), 2011)
