Working in Entomology

Working in Entomology is a careers guide with a difference. Written by AES Member Rachel McLeod, it is a collection of interviews with prominent entomologists working in different areas, right across the subject, from insect breeding to genetic research. This is a must-have book for careers teachers, and for anyone who is considering a career in entomology.

The book includes a foreword by Sir David Attenborough and introduction by Professor Simon Leather (the only Professor of Entomology left in the UK!).
