book review


Beetles account for about 40% of the insect species that have been described in the world, so it is great to see another book that addresses this diverse group. The author previously has written several insect books, including “National Wildlife Federation Field Guide to Insects and Spiders & Related Species of North America” and “Field Guide to Beetles of California”. In this book he uses his expertise in beetles and photography to produce a massive field guide showcasing the diversity of beetles of the eastern United States and Canada.
