The Curious World of Insects


Description

Since life evolved on this planet, there have been some major extinctions, but insects – since their arrival 400 million years ago – have not been amongst them. How have insects survived when species after species is going extinct?  There is now an increasing amount of interest in knowing the secrets of their survival. In The Weavers, silk forms the central motif of an enquiry into the life of insects, their management practices, their mating rituals and ways of life.
