Tells the remarkable success story of the insects, one which is unparalleled in evolutionary or ecological history. In a non-technical style Waldbauer pursues the answers to how these indefatigable creatures survive and prosper, from the hot springs to the Himalayan slopes, from the lightless caves to the Great Salt Lake, from roadsides to forests. As we pass through the seasons we learn of the incredible diversity of mechanisms by which insects attract and court their mates, provide for their offspring, satisfy their particular food requirements, and avoid becoming food themselves. Accessible and lively, but always grounded in the science of the subject.
