WWU professor writes new ‘Pacific Northwest Insects’ field guide

The Chinook Observer

The book showcases about 1,200 regional insects, and mentions ways to identify a few thousand more. Peterson took about half of the 1,700 photographs in the book. Though this is still only a tiny slice of the 30,000 insect species that have been catalogued in the region, from tiny wasps the size of a pinhead to huge tiger moths, Peterson’s experience from studying the region’s insects, teaching entomology, and identifying insects for the public helped him focus on the subjects that are most likely to be of interest.
