Insect, classification, systematics, taxonomy, identification, Origin of Arthropods and insects, nomenclature, Numerical taxonomy, speciation, taxonomic key, Hierarchy, collections, Hybridization.

This book chronicles the complete evolutionary history of arthropods and most importantly of insects; their diversity, relationships, process of fossilization and fossils in particular. The book also contains chapters on Relationship between Taxonomy and Systematics, Modern Classification, Concept of species and Entomological database, to name a few. Numerical Taxonomy and Kinds of taxonomic keys beautifully illustrated with figures and diagrams to help in identification of important insects are also incorporated. The book will appeal to any one engaged in Insect Taxonomy, professional entomologists, insect collectors and curators.  

Taxonomy is a subject which is so operational that it could not be learned theoretically. Therefore, the present book will serve as a guide for those who are learning the subject and also for taxonomists, teachers, students pursuing higher education and aspiring for a career in entomology.

The present reference book would be very useful for under- graduate and post-graduate students and for those who are willing to succeed in various competitive exams. It will also provide a thorough knowledge of bio-systematics for classifying insects.
