Organization

The Encyclopedia of Insects is organized to provide the maximum ease of use for its readers. All of the articles are arranged in a single alphabetical sequence by title. An alphabetical Table of

Contents for the articles can be found beginning on p. v of this introductory section.

As a reader of the Encyclopedia, you can use this alphabetical Table of Contents by itself to locate a topic. Or you can first identify the topic in the Contents by Subject Area (p. xiii) and then go to the alphabetical Table to find the page location.

So that they can be more easily identified, article titles begin with the key word or phrase indicating the topic, with any descriptive terms following this. For example, "Temperature, Effects on Development and Growth" is the title assigned to this article, rather than "Effects of Temperature on Development and Growth," because the specific term Temperature is the key word.
