About this book

Language: Swedish

In Galen i Insekter Goulson tells the story of how he bought a derelict farm in the heart of rural France, together with 33 acres of surrounding meadow and how, over a decade, he has created a place for his beloved bumblebees to thrive. But other creatures live there too, a myriad insects of every kind, many of them ones that Goulson has studied before in his career as a biologist. You will learn about how a deathwatch beetle finds its mate, about the importance of houseflies, why butterflies have spots on their wings, about dragonfly sex, bed-bugs and wasps. Goulson is brilliant, and very funny, at showing how scientists actually conduct experiments.

Galen i Insekter is also a wake-up call, urging us to cherish and protect life on earth in all its forms. Goulson has that rare ability to persuade you to go out into your garden or local park and get down on your hands and knees and look. The undiscovered glory that is life in all its forms on planet Earth is there to be discovered. And if we learn to value what we have, perhaps we will find a way to keep it.

Summary in Swedish:
Jag vill få dig att betrakta vår värld med nya ögon, förmå dig att gå ut i din trädgård eller i en park och ställa dig på knä och titta. Det finns så mycket att se. Om du tittar tillräckligt nära kan du inte undgå att uppskatta den dyrbara, outforskade prakt som livet på planeten jorden är. Om vi lär oss att sätta värde på det vi har, kanske vi kan hitta ett sätt att behålla det.

Galen i Insekter är berättelsen om hur biologiprofessorn Dave Goulson med en stor portion passion (och viss galenskap) förvandlade en nergången gård på den franska landsbygden till ett insektsparadis.

Bland de små invånarna på vår planet döljer sig oändligt stora äventyr. Här får du lära dig hur skalbaggar hittar en partner, varför husflugor faktiskt är viktiga, vad fjärilens fläckar betyder, om trollsländors sexliv och mycket annat du inte visste att du ville veta om insekternas magiska värld.
