ESA Books

The Entomological Society of America publishes books in three categories. The Thomas Say series includes monographs, proceedings, and memoirs covering the breadth of entomology. Handbooks are practical guides to dealing with common insect pests. Certification books are training manuals that prepare individuals for ESA’s certification programs.

ESA members have free access to more than 160 e-books via the BioOne platform  (member journal access will continue through the Oxford University Press site). This includes all of the below series except for IPM for the Urban Professional, plus the Miscellaneous Publications of the Entomological Society of America and numerous one-off titles.
