Comments:
Hawaiian Insects and Their Kin is superbly illustrated with 200 vibrant color photographs, including such marvels as canivorous moth caterpillars, predatory happy face spiders, and "singing" tree snails whose "songs" charmed and intrigued scientists for more than 50 years before their secret was discovered. From sandhoppers, centipedes, and crickets to beetles, bugs, and butterflies. Howarth and Mull describe characteristics and habitats, and how each creature came to be in the islands. Ths books makes known some of the dominant groups of one of the most unique insect faunas anywhere on earth, shows how the study of these insects improves our general understanding of entomology and ecology, dispels the fear of meeting an unknown animal, and shows the excitement of studying insects and their relatives.
