About this book

South-East Asia possesses a staggering number of species of insects, including the bizarre stick and leaf insects, masters of camouflage. They include some of the largest, longest, heaviest and most stunning insects. Because they are so well hidden in their natural habitat and have no adverse harmful effects on humans, they have been neglected in research. An Illustrated Guide to the Stick and Leaf Insects of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore presents the fascination of these insects, and functions as an aid to identifying a number of their species in Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore; it will help make for a more meaningful foray into one of the last wilderness frontiers of this world.
