About this book

Language: German

The European mantis, Mantis religiosa – colloquially known as the praying mantis – is one of our most impressive and interesting insects due to its peculiar shape and posture, its highly movable head and its predatory way of life. The mating behaviour of the mantis with the occasional, but often overestimated, sexual cannibalism is remarkable as well.

With this volume, the author imparts his knowledge acquired through years of observation of the mantis in its natural habitat, taking into account the experiences of other professionals and the most important literature. He covers the history, phylogeny, systematics, distribution, biology, ecology, and conservation with the aid of numerous illustrations and photographs.
