Updated for the first time in over twenty years, the third edition of Insects of the Los Angeles Basin is a beautifully produced and richly illustrated field guide to more than 450 common or conspicuous insects, spiders, millipedes, and other anthropoids that inhabit the region. Each species account describes the size and physical characteristics of insects at their adult and immature stages. Entries also incorporate information on habitat, geographic range, behavior, food preferences, nests, noises and scents - even lore of the more notorious species.
Written with the Greater Los Angeles Basin as its focus but useful to residents of the entire coastal area of Southern California from Santa Barbara to San Diego, this book is an invaluable source for hikers, gardeners, teachers, students, and anyone else curious about the diversity of life in our midst.
