For love of insects

Thomas Eisner

Independent Publisher Book Award for Best Science Book Winner of the 2003 Professional/Scholarly Publishing Award of the Association of American Publishers, Biology Category Imagine beetles ejecting defensive sprays as hot as boiling water; female moths holding their mates for ransom; caterpillars disguising themselves as flowers by fastening petals to their bodies; termites emitting a viscous glue to rally fellow soldiers - and you will have entered an insect world once beyond imagining, a world observed and described down to its tiniest astonishing detail by Thomas Eisner.
