Pollinators, parasites, predators, decomposers – insects arguably play the most important roles in the functioning of the Earth’s ecosystems.

This lavishly illustrated and highly authoritative book is structured around southern Africa’s 13 distinct biomes; it

  • reflects the essential role insects play in most ecological processes such as pollination, predation, parasitism, soil modifi cation and nutrient recycling;
  • details how they serve as food for multitudes of other organisms, including bacteria and fungi, as well as specially adapted plants, insect-feeding arthropods, reptiles, birds and mammals;
  • depicts the insects and phenomena described in some 1,600 photographs that accompany the accessible text;
  • highlights the crucial role insects play as ecosystem service providers, giving intimate insight into the beauty and importance of insects in the natural world.
  • includes a guide to each of the 25 insect orders found in southern Africa, with images showing their diagnostic characters.

This key publication detailing the latest research in the field of entomology will appeal to academics and nature enthusiasts alike.

Review This Product

A wonderful book

Sat, 27 Mar 2021 | Review by: Polya314

This book is fantastic and very complete. It divides southern Africa up into 9 biomes: coastal regions, caves, and urban environments. It proceeds to discuss the major insect life in each environment and biome, as well as how they interact with one another and humans. It's great value for money as it's printed on full colour, glossy pages.
