The Praying Mantids
By Frederick R. Prete, Lawrence E. Hurd, Patrick, H. Wells, Harrington Wells
Johns Hopkins University Press, 2000
ISBN: 0-8018-6174-8
Cite: 4453
A book discussing much of the current research into mantids and containing a lot of information and data. It is not a field guide, though it contains several pages of color photographs of mantid species from around the world. A must read for mantid enthusiasts, but it may be a bit too technical for those only minorly interested.
