Review:

`this is a beautiful book ... an excellent introduction to what is a fascinating group of animals, informative and easy to read ... it is very pleasant to see this being pubished ... All in all an excellent work which will be of use to Collembologists and general entomologists for years to come. Highly Recommended.' Gordon's Oxford University Press Review Page

'.....This well-produced and well-illustrated book deserves to be on the shelves of all major libraries in the fields of entomology and agriculture.' D.Pomeroy
