`This book tackles a timely and contentious topic and succeeds to the extent that it will remain a resource book on the problem of insect conservation in Australia for years to come. ...coverage of informatin is excellent and a comprehensive list of 266 references gives access to a truly international literature on insect conservation.'
Journal of the Australian Entomological Society, 24 (1985)
`...New's thoughtful work not only points the way ahead for Australians, but provides a very valuable summary for conservationists in the northern hemisphere too.'
