ENCYCLOPEDIA of INSECTS
Together with beautiful painted illustrations provided by Miranda Zimmerman, we want to inspire you to look out for and study these unsung heroes of the natural world. To come to know them. To know their names. To shout from the rooftops about how amazing they are. And, hopefully, to give a helping hand in bringing them back to a former glory. This really is the Planet of the Insects, after all. I hope, through books like this one, that we can keep it that way
Get to know insects
To love something, you first of all have to spend some time with it. Soak up as much as you can about insects, using books like this one or by studying those insects closest to you, in your garden or school grounds. If you don’t know what insect species you are looking at, then sketch an illustration or take a photo and send it to a local museum. Often, they will be delighted to help you work out what sort of insect it is
Make your neighborhood insect-friendly
Insects love places to feed, places to hide and places to lay their eggs. You can encourage insects into your garden or local area by planting lots of wildflowers where pollinating insects can gather nectar and by adding wood piles in which they can seek shelter. If you have a grass lawn, consider letting some areas grow long to provide places for insects to hide and keep cool in the summer sun.
Take part in citizen science!
Many of the facts in this book have been gathered by amateur insect-lovers working together to discover new things. For instance, to help understand how far the painted lady butterfly (see page 115) migrates, teams of people across Europe kept a lookout for them and reported when and where they saw them flying. This so-called citizen science is likely to become very important in helping scientists discover new things about insects. Your school or local museum might be able to tell you of citizen science schemes that you can join.
WHAT IS AN INSECT?
Insects can be told apart from other armoured invertebrates such as spiders and crabs by looking for the key features you can see on this page.
Mayflies first appeared in the world long before dinosaurs, more than 300 million years ago. Mayflies live most of their life underwater as nymphs. Some species live only a few days as flying adults, hence the word ‘ephemero’ in their scientific name – ‘ephemeral’means ‘short-lived’
Dragonflies are skilled aerial predators that fly upon powerful wings which allow them to hover in search of prey, before quickly giving chase. In all, 3,000 species live today. Dragonflies are associated with freshwater because their nymphs are aquatic
There are almost 3,000 species of damselfly on Earth and each is a dynamic aerial hunter of other invertebrates. Damselflies can be told apart from dragonflies because most damselflies rest their wings against their body when they land. Dragonflies, on the other hand, rest with their wings held outwards like an aeroplane.
In all, approximately 11,000 grasshopper species are known today and nearly all species are capable of making giant leaps courtesy of their long back legs. In the early days of the dinosaurs, grasshoppers were one of the first insects to hit upon a plant-eating way of life.
