Ladybugs of Alberta

Finding the Spots and Connecting the Dots

"Despite what many people think, little ladybugs don't grow up to be big ladybugs." -John Acorn Everybody loves a ladybug, and no one is more passionate about these spotted creatures than John Acorn, who has produced this, the first regional ladybug field guide in North America. With comprehensive maps, colour photographs, and illustrations of 75 different species, Acorn educates readers on the beauty and diversity of ladybugs in Alberta. He also explains the impact that introduced species have had on these remarkably diverse insects. Professional entomologists, bug-loving kids, and nature-walk enthusiasts will find ladybug identification enjoyable and rewarding with Acorn's combination of expertise and humour.
