The colour plates were created by scientific illustrator and artist, Frank Nanninga, specially for "The Insects of Australia" volumes I and II. The two volumes provide a comprehensive account of Australia's distinctive and exciting insect fauna. The volumes include detailed treatments of the morphology and biology of all insect orders and up-to-date summaries for all families known to occur in Australia. Keys using structural features, over 2000 black-and-white illustrations, colour plates and electron micrographs enable the reader to place any Australian insect in its correct family.
