About This Book

A comprehensive field guide to Texas's insects, featuring 1, 300 species and over 2, 700 photographs. Thanks to its size and geographic position, Texas is home to nearly 30, 000 species of insects, likely making its insect population the most diverse in the nation. Ranging from eastern and western to temperate and tropical species, this vast array of insects can be difficult to identify. In Common Insects of Texas and Surrounding States, John and Kendra Abbott have created the state's most comprehensive field guide to help readers recognize and understand these fascinating creatures. Containing 1, 300 species and more than 2, 700 photographs, this guide offers a wealth of information about the characteristics and behaviors of Texas's insects. Each chapter introduces an order with a discussion of general natural history and a description of other qualities helpful in distinguishing its various species, while every species' entry provides a state map showing where it is most likely to be found, a key displaying its seasonal distribution, information about its habitat, and corresponding photos. Featuring colored tabs for quick reference, a glossary, and information about other arthropods, this guide is the perfect companion for anyone wanting to identify and learn more about the many insects of Texas. "Expertly written and beautifully illustrated, this exceptional book will be of interest to both professional and beginning naturalists." —Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University
