Listing Detail Tabs

By Michael Chinery

Welcome to the fascinating, engrossing, and often overlooked world of insects. They are endlessly intriguing creatures and make up the largest group of animals in the natural world. This book affords the reader a rare and intimate view of their world. It covers all aspects of their lives, from egg laying, to larva and pupa stages, infancy and their adult life and the ways they mate. It covers the food they eat and how they eat it, the ways in which they protect themselves from predators, and the ways in which they turn prey on others, and the homes that they live in.

The stunning images capture the strange beauty and astounding details of the insects. From a myriad of species from every corner of the globe - from searingly hot deserts to rainforests, and from woodlands to rivers - each photograph and the accompanying informative text reveals something new about the creatures, whether it be an intricately common piece of anatomy or one of their many intelligent behavioural patterns, sowing us just how vital a role their seemingly unimportant existence plays in the larger world.
