Thank you for your interest in Lake Merritt and Greater Oakland Insects. This field guide covers 144 common insects and arthropods that can be seen in Oakland with 229 color photographs.
The Insect Sciences Museum of California presents this free download to introduce the public to ISMC efforts to write "Insects of the San Francisco Bay Area". The LMGOI guide is one more than 40 small guides about insects in open space areas around the Bay Area.
This guide is being distributed freely thanks to a generous donation by a Bay Area science educator, but ISMC gladly accepts donations.
