INSECTS ON PARADE by Clarence J. Hylander


Email this review


With good books on a variety of aspects of the nature world to his credit (see Adventures With Reptiles, Animals in Armor, Sea and Shore, etc.) Mr. Hylander has the background with which to embark on on an efficient elementary course on the physiology of the main classes of North American insects and bugs. Rather like a basic zoology text, introductory chapters deal with basic body characteristics and living habits- the physiology of the systems, metamorphosis, etc. Next come particularization, with the material on various insect classes- hymenoptera, lepidoptera, bees, ants and so forth- in which there are descriptions of all the different kinds of bugs and insects we are likely to encounter at home or in the field.
