This is a technical manual on the general morphology, reproduction and metamorphosis of insects, together with a standard classification beginning with subclasses and ending with suborders or, in the case of some medically important groups, with families. Both the general sections and the more special portions are generously supplied with well labelled line drawings. A key to classification follows the main text, and a short bibliography concludes the presentation. The publication should be useful to students of college level who desire essential information on the structure of insects and the characters that serve to identify them. It also constitutes a valuable prerequisite for persons interested in taking more specialized training in medical or economic entomology.
