In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Australia's beetles and bugs may be small - but if we look hard enough, they show us some of the most bizarre and fascinating lifestyles and behaviours on our planet. This Steve Parish Wild Australia Guide opens up the miraculous small-scale world of Australia's most numerous inhabitants. In describing endless variations on being born, growing up, finding food and a partner, reproducing and eventually being eaten or dying, this book shows that beetles and bugs never cease to amaze.
The aim of this Wild Australia Guide is to promote understanding of these insects and concern about their habitats and wellbeing - and to remove the fear factor. Illustrated with beautiful photographs and with clear accounts of representative families and species, this book presents a whole new world to anyone with an interest in seeing more of the exquisite and colourful detail around us.
