How Insects Work goes beyond the typical field guide to show us not only what insects look like but why. Arguably the most successful land animals—still going strong after five mass extinctions—insects have evolved a spectacular array of real-life superpowers to help them thrive in virtually every environment: Bumblebees’ wingbeats leave a faint electrical signal at each flower they visit to show that the nectar’s already been taken (see page 57), and houseflies defy gravity with tiny leg hairs that stick to the smoothest wall or ceiling (see page 69).
In this in-depth, photo-filled handbook, discover the ways insects are even more astounding than you know—inside and out:

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