Second edition of this popular AIDGAP identification guide to the larger (>1mm length) invertebrates found on land throughout the British Isles.

Designed for use with living specimens, using standard sampling techniques, characters which require considerable expertise, or expensive equipment, have deliberately been avoided. Ecological notes are included for all groups. For the second edition, the  taxonomy has been brought fully up to date.

AIDGAP produces simple and clearly written identification keys, aimed at non-specialist users from age 16+. The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
