KIRKUS REVIEW

A handbook and reference for young entomologists who already are familiar with many common insects and who have the motivation to make the most of this catalogue of insect reproduction. Hutchins proceeds systematically from the primitive silverfish and the three-stage life history of the orthoptera on up through the more complex life cycles of butterflies, ants and bees. His descriptions are precise with a minimum of incidental background, and the black and white photographs, which will enable even beginners to identify many types of eggs, galls and larvae, are of primary importance.
