Veterinary Entomology: Arthropod Ecoparasites of Veterinary Importance
By Richard Wall and David Shearer
Springer, 1997
Paperback

Evolution of the Insects
By David Grimaldi and Michael S. Engel
Wonderfully and copiously illustrated, communicates the current thinking on the evolution and systematics of these complex beings. Because I feel too small to review such a great book, but obviously think it should be prominent on our book list, I quote from Thomas Eisner's statement on the back cover: "A landmark contribution, not just to entomology and evolutionary biology, but to the life sciences as a whole...A must for naturalists, young and old. Truly a definitive work."

Les Insectes du Québec--Guide d' Identification
By Yves Dubuc
Éditions Broquet, 2005
In French. Described on http://www.lesinsectesduquebec.com/ as having over 2000 color photos of 1530 species of insects. (That site also has extensive resources on-line.)
Careful, there may be a popular and a "scientific" version of this work--I can't be quite sure of the ISBN. See for instance, the
amazon Canada
listing, which shows a different cover than the work above.

Insects and Gardens: In Pursuit of a Garden Ecology
By Eric Grissell
Timber Press (OR), 2001
An interesting book. Mostly it is an introduction to insect diversity and ecology for gardeners, but later chapters talk about some tricks for attracting insects. Much of the book is really trying to convince traditional gardeners that the presence of insects is not necessarily a bad thing. The photographs (by Carll Goodpasture) are excellent, and reproduced beautifully.
