A new edition of Michael Chinery's Pocket Guide Insects, regarded as one of the main guides to the insects of Britain and Western Europe. The introduction explains the scope of the book with a basic survey of classification, anatomy and life-cycles and the key is cross-referenced to the text to enable the reader to place any insect into its correct group. The insects are arranged scientifically, covering all orders found in Europe and all major families with illustrations covering the species most likely to be noticed for their size, colour, frequency or association with humans.
