DUSTWRAPPER TEXT
We shriek about them, slap and spray them, and generally think of insects (when we think of them at all) as pests. Yet, if all insects, or even a critical few, were to disappear if there were none to pollinate plants, serve as food for other animals, dispose of dead organisms, and perform other ecologically essential tasks-virtually all the ecosystems on earth, the webs of life, would unravel. This book, the first to catalogue ecologically important insects by their roles, gives us an enlightening look at how insects work in ecosystemsand how they make life as we know it possible.
