This book, with complete coverage of collecting and preserving techniques, is long overdue. - Dr. W. Wyatt Hoback, University of Nebraska at Kearney, U.S.A. "At last there is a book that adequately covers the essentials of Arthropod collecting techniques. I will most certainly make this a required textbook when it becomes available. This book will save instructors time and materials." - Paul Choate, University of Florida, Gainesville, U.S.A. "This text will become one of the standards found on every entomologist's bookshelf. I especially like the explanation of ordinal name derivatives that are given for each order and for many glossary terms." - Steve Mroczkiewicz, Syngenta Crop Protection, Attica, Indiana, U.S.A. Arthropod Collection and Identification is an outstanding resource for serious collectors. Written by premier entomologists, this comprehensive collection and identification book has excellent drawings that clearly illustrate the steps involved in creating your own collection. - Natalie Carroll, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, U.S.A.
