About this book

According to Eisner, to understand the success of insects is to appreciate our own shortcomings. Recounting exploits and discoveries in his lab at Cornell and in the field in Uruguay, Australia, Panama, Europe and North America, he shows how inquiry into the survival strategies of an insect often leads to unexpected discoveries. The book contains many accounts of ingenious experiments and is illustrated with revealing, and very beautiful photographs. Foreword by EO Wilson.

Media reviews

For Love of Insects contains enough depth and description to engage even the most dedicated entomologist, yet because the material is presented in Eisner's engaging style, the reader never gets lost in a maze of scientific jargon...I think it would be hard for any reader to come away from this book without sharing in the author's sense of wonder at the amazing ways in which insects have evolved to defend, mate, and live. With fewer and fewer people engaged in the study of biology and natural history, this book could serve to explain to nonscientists why insects deserve respect.--Scott Hoffman Black "BioScience "
