Description


Discover why insects look and behave the way they do in this fully illustrated field guide to the world’s most adaptable animals.

Still going strong after five mass extinctions, insects may be the most successful land animals ever. They have evolved a spectacular array of real-life superpowers to help them thrive in virtually every environment on the planet. Filled with fascinating photography and in-depth information, this volume explains why insects are even more astounding than you know—inside and out.

In How Insects Work, readers discover how a bumblebees’ wingbeats leave a faint electrical signal at each flower they visit to show that the nectar’s already been taken; and how houseflies defy gravity with tiny leg hairs that stick to the smoothest wall or ceiling. Topics covered include:

  • Evolution
  • Exoskeleton and Body Segments
  • Senses
  • Circulation
  • Digestion
  • Respiration
  • Reproduction
  • Metamorphosis
  • Movement
  • And much, much more!
