Review 5/5 Stars

This large-format encyclopedia is a sequel to or the companion to the Atlas of Extinct Animals and another of Endangered Animals. It is about 100 pages and has beautiful full-page illustrations and other smaller ones just as the previous volumes. They are written with compact text with a lot of information technical that touches a lot of facts and scientifical knowledge, but it can be appreciated by students from a young age and adults.

I recommend teachers and educators have this collection and type of encyclopedia always available. It doesn't have spiders... spiders are not insects. eheh

Did you know there are about 1 million insect species? Did you know their blood is not red but full of nutrients and it's called haemolymph? Did you know dragonflies can fly backward? Some insects get more recognition and love from us, but even ladybugs can give others a hard time. This encyclopedia gives insightful knowledge and helps us understand that there is an important balance and that many insects are vital to the lives of other creatures (from plants to ourselves). The disappearance of about 75% can be catastrophic and we're already experiencing some of it. We are not alone even when we don't see them (some like cold and prefer ice) but they contribute to the life of our planet. And they co-operate. For example, every species of fig has its own species of fig waps trading refuge for pollination. Others are predators and control the numbers and balance, and some carrier diseases (that can also be harmful to us as well). A very useful illustration shows a large tree with relationships between the insect species and we get to see who is closest to being cousins. I've learned a lot from this book that includes a lot of chapters and beautiful illustrations not only dedicated to the different insect species but to giving us an insight into their dawn of times, evolution, reproduction, body structure, co-operations between species, strangest shapes, strange habits...
