Reviews

Today Australia has the oldest living crickets, lacewings, beetles, ants, and the only silent cicadas in the world. While these ancestral forms have disappeared from other continents, they have hung on in Australia, maintaining their close associations with the native plants and animals. Australian Insects contains over 300 full-color photographs and detailed illustrations along with an informative text that covers the natural history, life cycles, habits and habitats of insects, as well as giving an overview of all the insect orders present in Australia. A complete chapter is devoted to the collection and observation of insects. Each insect specimen has been fully identified and photographed in its natural environment. The spectacular photographs in Australian Insects are a testament to Bert's acute observational skills and make this book a valuable asset to both professional and amateur entomologists alike.

"Bert Brunet's enthusiasm and scientific interest in this subject are immediately conveyed to the general reader in this well organized and clearly written book and his brilliant close-up photographs reveal these complex creatures in all their intricate and colorful detail…Highly recommended…" -- Pat Prior, The Garden Clubs of Australia Inc., Autumn 2001

"A gorgeous hardback that is superbly illustrated with some breathtaking photography…I could not recommend a book more highly." -- Paul Healy, The Mercury, January 2001
