Not always regarded with kindness, insects nevertheless hold an enormous fascination for man. And far from being the commonly held "destructive pests", most insects are completely harmless and many are beneficial, if not essential, to human well-being.

Southern African Insects and Their World gives an unbiased look at the insect realm in a way that enables the reader to appreciate and enjoy these remarkable creatures - which outnumber all other plant and animal groups on earth.

The guide is divided into eight chapters which focus on insects' bodies, the behaviour of insects (finding food, mating and development) and on their many and varied strategies for survival (robustness, agility, camouflage, co-operation, patterning, stinging and biting).
