Book Review

[First paragraph(s)...]
From a little after the turn of the century there has appeared on the market the occasional hand book on New Zealand insects but it is only in the last few years that we have seen the emergence of more substantial works of a more technical nature on this subject. Such a work is David Miller's Common Insects of New Zealand with a central block of nine coloured plates, 456 text figures and 178 pages, including an appendix on insect structure development and classification, a very brief glossary, a substantial index, and a list of principal, general works on this subject.
