Annotation "Insects are by far the most successful, variable, and bizarre group of living things on our planet. Armour-plated, flying, burrowing, parasitic, social and solitary, there are over a million species of them, and much of their biology remains a mystery. Complete and definitive, The New Encyclopedia of Insects and their Allies combines reference information with essays, and is illustrated with an array of colour photographs and specially commissioned artwork. From mantids to millipedes, from spiders to beetles and bugs, this volume provides a summary of the current scientific understanding of this group of animals."--BOOK JACKET.
