About this book

Insectopedia: The Secret World of Southern African Insects uncovers the fascinating and infinitely varied world of insects. It explores their intriguing behaviour and biology – from mating and breeding, metamorphosis and movement to sight, smell, hearing and their adaptations to heat and cold.

A chapter on superorganisms probes the curious phenomenon of social communities among insects; another covers the critical role that these creatures play in maintaining the fragile balance of life on our planet.

Insectopedia: The Secret World of Southern African Insects concludes with a 60-page illustrated field guide, describing most insect orders and their main families.

Previously published as Insectopedia of Southern Africa, this fully revised and redesigned edition includes up-to-date information throughout, an expanded ID section, and several hundred new photographs.
