About this Reference Work

The Encyclopedia of Entomology brings together the expertise of more than 450 distinguished entomologists from 40 countries to provide a worldwide overview of insects and their close relatives. Combining the basic science of an introductory text with accurate, comprehensive detail, the Encyclopedia is a reliable first source of reference for students and working professionals. Coverage includes insect classification, behavior, ecology, genetics and evolution, physiology, and management, and references to relevant literature. All the major arthropod groups are addressed, along with many important families and species. The Encyclopedia places special emphasis on insect relationships with people, medical entomology, biological control and insect pathology. This important work also presents biographical sketches of hundreds of entomologists who have made important contributions to the discipline since its origin. The new Second Edition is fully indexed, and includes more than 120 color plates.
The four-volume Encyclopedia of Entomology is a handy desk-top reference for entomologists, and a valuable source of information for scientists and students in agronomy, botany, disease biology, ecology, evolutionary biology, forestry, genetics, horticulture, parasitology, toxicology, and zoology. It is also available as an easily accessible, fully searchable online reference.

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 … ." (Mary Robinson, Reference Reviews, Vol. 23 (5), 2009)
