This is a guide to insect life in a part of the world known for its abundant, and endangered, life forms. The study embraces a vast geographical territory - Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean - and generous numbers of representative insects, to serve both the professional entomologist and the serious amateur. Hogue has selected insects and other terrestrial arthropods such as spiders and scorpions because they are common, conspicuous, or otherwise significant to humans (historically or agriculturally). He provides details of taxonomy, life history and behaviour, Spanish and Portuguese names and many valuable references. The introductory chapters include general and practical entomology, insect ecology and zoogeography, in addition to reviews of the major orders - all topics of fundamental interest and importance to entomological science in Latin America.
