Welcome to my Book, and other information resource, Review Page,/p>
Books have always been one of my great loves so it is a real pleasure for me to be able to review some of the currently available works on arthropods and their ecology. Some of these books are of broad general interest such as Smith's 'The Tarantulas of North America', others are more specialised such as Fedorenko's 'Reclassification of the World Dyschiriini'. I have graded the books into four general catagories, (i) Specialist, this means that unless you are working in this books particular field you will find it rather heavy going, (ii) Student, this means the book is particularly aimed at higher secondary and university undergratuate students, which means the book is fully referenced and will assume some knowledge of biology on the part of the reader, many of these books are well written and will be enjoyable for non-students to read (iii) General, this means anybody who has an interest in the subject should enjoy this, and (iv) Junior, this means the book is specifically aimed at younger readers. Some of the books are primarily taxonomic works but with a good helping of ecology, you will find these in both catagories.
Finally I have to thank all the publishers who have so kindly sent me the books in the so that I have been able to review them here.
Most of the book reviews on these pages are also a linked to from the most relevant subject pages within this site. However you find them I hope you enjoy them.
