This is the first comprehensive guide to insect life in a part of the world known for its abundant, and endangered, life forms. Charles Hogue's scholarship embraces vast geographical territory--Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Color photographs and first-rate drawings illustrate the clearly written text.

Covering Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean, this is the first comprehensive guide to insect life in this region. The author has selected insects and other terrestrial arthropods, such as spiders and scorpions, because they are common, conspicuous or significant to humans. The text provides details of taxonomy, life history and behaviour, plus Spanish & Portuguese names. There are general chapters on practical entomology, ecology, and zoogeography.
