500 Insects: A Visual Reference


A colourful guide featuring 500 insects from all major orders, in a variety of climates and habitats.

Insects make up more than half of the approximately 1.7 million named species of living things, however, there are still millions of insect species yet to be discovered. 

In 500 Insects, author Stephen Marshall showcases some of the most captivating insects he has encountered during his travels to North and South America, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, and beyond.

Detailed photographs of the insects in their natural habitats are accompanied by informative "factfiles" that provide additional insights into their lives.

Some of these insects have never been photographed before, making this book a valuable reference for insect enthusiasts.

The book also features an introduction to insect biology, classification, and distribution, as well as tips for collecting and photographing these fascinating creatures.
