Arthropod Collection and Identification: Laboratory and Field Techniques

Timothy J. Gibb

1stPublisher: Academic PressFormat: Paperback

Arthropods are the most numerous and diverse group of animals and studying these organisms requires the use of specialized equipment and specific procedures. This text describes effective methods and equipment for collecting, identifying, rearing, examining, and preserving insects and mites, and for storing and caring for specimens in collections. It also provides instructions for the construction of many kinds of collecting equipment, traps, rearing cages, and storage units, as well as updated and illustrated keys for identification of the classes of arthropods and the orders of insects. Such information not only aids hobbyists and professionals in preparing insect collections, but it has become essential in documenting and standardizing collections of entomological evidence in forensic as well as pest management sciences. The book includes over 400 professionally drawn illustrations; identification keys to find arthropod orders; a comprehensive reading list; and a detailed glossary of terms.
