About
A fascinating look at the world's most numerous inhabitants, illustrated with stunning images from the American Museum of Natural History's Rare Book Collection.

To date, we have discovered and described or named around 1.1 million insect species, and thousands of new species on Earth, making them the most diverse lineage of all life by far. This magnificent volume tells the incredible story of these innumerable animals: their evolution; metamorphosis; pests, parasites, and plagues; society and language; camouflage; and pollination - plus tales of discovery by intrepid entomologists. With more than 180 illustrations, you'll discover a world observed and documented down to its tiniest, astonishing detail, from butterflies' iridescent wings to beetles' vibrant colors.
