Flash Cards of Common Freshwater Invertebrates of North America Book Review:

Flash Cards of Common Freshwater Invertebrates of North America Set Three - Families of Other Insects consists of 32 cards, 30 of which feature a high-quality scientific illustration of an organism on one side and, on the other, the common and scientific names of the organism along with basic questions and answers about the biology, ecology, and environmental tolerances of the pictured organism. In addition, a booklet containing diagrams of body structures, a glossary of terms, an outline of the taxonomy of all taxa in the three sets, and suggestions for using the cards will accompany each set. Set Three treats the taxa at the family level and thereby provides more detail which, in turn, affords the opportunity to better understand the biological diversity of freshwater systems and the changes in environmental health brought on by human activities. This set would be most useful for teaching principles of biology and ecology at advanced high school and college levels, for training instructors who would be conducting interpretation or outreach activities, and for biomonitoring carried out by experienced citizen volunteers, agency personnel, or professional scientists. The 4 inch wide by 6 inch high cards are printed in full color on synthetic material with uv-resistant ink.

A Field Guide to the Tiger Beetles of the United States and Canada Book Review:

More than 2600 species of tiger beetles are found all over the world. In North America there are 116 species of tiger beetle, divided into 153 geographically distinct races. Detailed studies of their natural history, population dynamics, communities, patterns of worldwide species richness, and taxonomy of particular subgroups have produced much information. Tiger beetles are among the most widely investigated groups of insects, especially in terms of their ecology and geographic distribution. The first edition of A Field Guide to the Tiger Beetles of the United States and Canada, published in 2005, has served as a field and natural-history guide to all known species of tiger beetles found in North America above the Mexican border. The 2nd edition is a pleasant and comprehensible handbook of the identification, distribution, natural history, and habitat details of the 116 species of tiger beetles in North America. The updated handbook provides new information including observations of seasonality, range extensions and biology, a newly developed list of common names, and twenty-five artistically pleasing identification color plates. The second edition of A Field Guide to the Tiger Beetles of the United States and Canada provides essential information to recognize and easily identify tiger beetles for established naturalists and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

Peterson Field Guide to Moths of Northeastern North America Book Review:

There are thousands of moth species in the northeast of North America, and while it might seem that they are all drab grays and browns, there is actually a startling variety. They come in a rainbow of colors, from brilliant oranges and pinks to soft greens and violets. There are moths with colorful leopard-like spots, and ones that look more like B-movie aliens; some that are as large as your hand, and others the size of a grain of rice. With helpful tips on how to attract and identify moths, range maps and season graphs showing when and where to find each species, and clear photographs that use the unique Peterson arrow system for easy identification, this guide provides everything an amateur or experienced moth-watcher needs. Sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation and the Roger Tory Peterson Institute.

"A handy guide to the freshwater fishes of California designed for amateur naturalists and anglers. Alcorn's illustrations are excellent."—Peter Moyle, author of Inland Fishes of California "Freshwater Fishes of California contributes to the better understanding of the past and present history and biology of native and non-native freshwater fishes of California. It also provides practical information on how to sample, care for and/or utilize these fishes. Moreover, it reads like a good novel that piques your interest on fish natural history and identification. It should be of value to anglers, environmentalists concerned with protection of our aquatic habitats and resource, natural history buffs, and governmental biologists and administrators."—Theodore W.

Freshwater Macroinvertebrates of Northeastern North America Book Review:

A guide to the identification of insects and other macroinvertebrates found in bodies of freshwater in northeastern North America. Essentially a collection of regional taxonomic keys, it covers the aquatic and semiaquatic life stages of insects as well as freshwater crustaceans, mites, mollusks, oligochaetes, and leeches. Each chapter begins with a brief natural history of the taxon and a discussion of collection and preservation techniques. Following is a checklist of the families and genera, or in the noninsect chapters higher taxa, of the animals included in the key. Most of the chapter is devoted to the key: a series of concise couplets, well illustrated with many diagnostic drawings. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
