Entomology : an introduction
This book is a general introduction to entomology and includes coverage of the major insects (and mites) that cause harm to crops, livestock and humans. Entomology is the scientific study of insects, a branch of zoology. In the past the term “insect” was more vague, and historically the definition of entomology included the study of terrestrial animals in other arthropod groups or other phyla, such as arachnids, myriapods, earthworms, land snails, and slugs. This wider meaning may still be encountered in informal use. Entomology is now a well-established discipline and with the scope of the environmental sciences continuing to expand, the evidence that we can acquire from it is expected to continue to have the broadest possible appeal.
