Summary

Arthropod Collection and Identification Techniques is the most current and comprehensive illustrated guide to collecting and preparing insects, mites, ticks and spiders for display and study. Designed to be taken into the field or used in the laboratory and classroom, it summarizes all commonly used techniques for catching, handling, rearing, and preserving arthropods, explaining not only how they can be used, but also how each performs. As the ultimate reference, this text describes the equipment used when collecting specimens, provides instructions for the construction of traps, rearing cages, and storage units, and includes updated, illustrated keys for identification of the classes of arthropods and the orders of insects. This is an indispensable guide for hobbyists, researchers, students preparing insect collections, as well as practicing entomologists, acarologists, zoologists, forensic investigators, ecologists, and pest managers.
