Insects Identification Poster
Insects Identification Poster

24" x 36" full color laminated poster.
Insects are the most diverse group of animals on Earth. There are more than a million described species, more than all other animal groups combined. Insect collecting is a very popular hobby and is often assigned as a classroom project. With so many species, insect identification is difficult.
This chart presents all the insect orders through a brief description accompanied by detailed pictures of one or more species. A section on anatomy identifies important physical characteristics.
A unique branching system permits the novice to identify a specimen to the order level (beetle, bee, bug, butterfly, etc.). More detailed identification requires professional training and an extensive library.
This poster is extremely popular with collectors, kids and educators. It is widely used in schools and by collectors. This second edition has been graphically streamlined, making it easier to use.
