Product Description

From Library Journal

For beginners who wish to be serious hobbyists, these two latest entries in Fireside's "Practical" series (see Rick Imes's The Practical Botanist and Steve Parker's The Practical Paleontologist , LJ 6/15/91) can also help high school and college students understand basic tenets of geology and biology. Each book offers an overview of the main principles of its field. The Practical Geologist describes the history of the solar system, planetary development, and plate tectonics. The Practical Entomologist looks at anatomy and taxonomy. Each book describes proper fieldwork procedures, explains how to employ collecting tools and techniques, cautions readers about preserving rare specimens, and offers tips on keeping notes and mounting accurately documented collections. Major portions of each book are devoted to descriptions of particular specimens: insect families and species for entomology. The Practical Geologist contains an exhaustive explanation of how to draw geologic maps of rock layers by tracing outcrops. The Practical Entomologist lists organizations and biological supply companies that sell collecting gear and insects for study. Libraries will find these volumes an effective complement to field guides, especially for readers interested in learning how to get started building a serious geological or insect collection.-- Laurie Tynan, Montgomery Cty.

Format: Paperback
Back when I first began my fascination with insects, I picked up a copy of this book hoping it would help me with a project. I was impressed with the way it presents information order by order in true entomologist fashion. The pictures are great and the text informative. I would recommend this book to anyone who is just beginning in entomology and is looking for a great overview of insects and their lives.

This book was the first one I ever bought and it was very helpful.It is just loaded with useful information, and helpful diagrams. However, if you like hands on experiences, its loaded with all kinds of easy to do experiments that are fun and educational. However, due to the amount of scientific words and phrases, I would not recommend this book to children under seven.
