Entomology is the study of insects and includes the pinning and preservation of insects for future reference. Entomologists have developed protocols for preserving specimens that are designed to provide consistency throughout collections. 

In this e-book our primary focus is on teaching you how to prepare specimens that will look beautiful. 

Despite this focus we have been careful not to deviate from collection protocols too much. Littered throughout this comprehensive guide are a host of entomology facts, morphology notes as well as practical tips to give you a well-rounded picture of this fascinating field.
