There are about a million species of insects and they outnumber all other sorts of animals by almost four to one. This book is a stimulating introduction to their extraordinary variety and abundance, and concentrates on the more curious and unexpected aspects of insect life. It will lead to an understanding of why insects are so successful but also points out that there is still much to be discovered about insects and the way they live.
