This review is from: Extreme Insects (Hardcover)
This book deals with the oddities of the insect world and there are certainly some oddities.
There are 3 groups-
1)Extreme forms eg. oldest,biggest,whiteist,shieneist plus 48 other descriptions.
2)Extreme evolution eg. most punctual,giddiest,most useful plus 45 other characteritics.
3)Extreme impact eg.most useful to researcch,most painful sting,most revered plus 31 others.
There are 2 pages for each insect one for text and one for a picture.the text includes name,location attributes and an essay.
Well written and researched but is let down by the close up camera lens as in many cases it has inadequate focusing power.
Nevertheless a fascinating book.
