From the Publisher:

Although photo atlases in other fields of the life sciences have long been available to aid students in their studies, there has never been one for entomology. One reason for this is the great number of photos necessary for such a book to be of any value. Fortunately for students, Dr. Castner has spent the past 25 years photographing insects with his work appearing in everything from National Geographic to Ranger Rick. Dr. Castner's experience in teaching and working with students has allowed him to produce a work that exactly addresses their needs. His Photographic Atlas of Entomology is simple, thorough, user-friendly, and very reasonably priced. It should be a great help to any entomology student, as well as to the professors teaching entomology courses.

From the Author:

I can't tell you how many times I have seen students sitting in the hallway outside the entomology lab, frantically trying to study in the last few minutes before a quiz or lab practical. These and other students deserve something better than a bunch of pages of hastily scrawled notes from which to study. The purpose of this photo atlas is NOT to take the place of students examining actual specimens in a collection. The purpose is to make it easier for them to study such specimens, and to review these studies in a more meaningful way outside the lab by having photographs of representative insects to guide them.

I have set what I feel is a low price ($35) on this book in order to make it affordable to all students. However, with 670 color images included, printing costs were high. I will listen to feedback from both students and professors, and will try to incorporate changes that will improve this text in future additions. It is my sincere hope that both students and teachers will find this book helpful with the result that entomology becomes more fun.
