About this book

Insects are the most successful group of animals ever to have lived: they comprise a million species and perhaps 10 quintillion individuals.

Much of life on earth depends on the activities of these busy, teeming arthropods, from pollination to the breaking down of waste matter.

Each chapter of Planet Insect centres on one or more of the traits of insect life that have allowed them to hold dominion over the earth's terrestrial and freshwater environments for so long, from their staggering reproductive ability to their complex partnership with flowering plants. Planet Insect offers a winning fusion of glorious imagery and fine biological writing by an entomological specialist who writes both entertainingly and with authentic scientific rigour – and who also happens to be a very gifted nature photographer.
