Pick of the Month

Aquatic Entomology

Thursday, February 19, 2009

Occasionally you will open a book and be amazed at the life depicted within, thinking, “Oh my God, that stuff really exists?” That’s what this book does for me. It has the best scientific illustrations of insect I have ever seen. Along with the illustrations, McCafferty’s text makes great reading. You really get a feel for the life that occurs under the water.
The book may be a bit pricey, but I think it is well worth it. Whether you are an entomologist, ecologist, naturalist, fisherman or just interested in what might be lurking in that stream, this book makes a welcome addition to every library.
