About this book

Please note: not to be confused with the 2013 book by Paul Spencer Sochaczewski by the same title.

Provides an engaging look at these magnificent, yet poorly understood, creatures and highlights the absolutely essential role that beetles play in the dynamics of nearly every terrestrial ecosystem on earth. The book contains specific information about the anatomy, development, and life cycles of beetles around the world; chronicles their 250-million year evolution; and traces human fascination with beeetles throughout history. Includes over 120 stunning full colour photographs and black/white drawings.
