Books about Phasmids


The following is a selection of recommendable in-print books about Phasmids. There is a large number of books about Phasmids, many of which deal with the kaptive breeding and rearing of these insects. There are furthermore several basic children's books mainly from US publishers, and many general books about the breeding of insects include chapters on Phasmids. These are however omitted here.
