Agricultural insect pests of temperate regions and their controlBy Hill D.S.
Cambridge Univ Press. 659 pp., 1987
has a cozy feel of a poetry anthology; reasonably informative.
a funny detail: the two world maps on p.23 showing “General geographical/biological subdivisions” and “Zoogeographical regions,” respectively, are provided in two different projections (Mercator and Miller, it seems)... what were they thinking?
Larvae of InsectsBy Alvah Peterson
Edwards Brothers, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 1948
Two Volume Set
Part I is subtitled "Lepidoptera and Hymenoptera"
Part II is subtitled "Coleoptera, Diptera, Neuroptera, Siphonaptera, Mecoptera, Trichoptera".
The publication year refers to the first edition. These volumes are primarily an identification guide with keys, drawings, descriptions, and bibliographies. Part I, though, contains some brief introductory material on equipment and methods for collecting, killing, dissecting, and preserving insect larvae that I found interesting.
