( School Librarian, Winter 2002)From the Publisher:
Insects and spiders are the world's most successful animals. They appeared on earth more than 400 million years ago, long before the dinosaurs existed. Today, even though they can be found almost everywhere on earth, tropical rainforests are home to the vast majority of insects and spiders. It is possible that nine out of every ten insects on earth live in these habitats.
This book looks at the huge range of insects and spiders that live in the rainforest, and at their homes, food and threats. Beautifully designed, and illustrated with stunning new photographs, its features include special 'links' boxes highlighting the relationships of rainforest insects to those living in other habitats around the world; and 'Rainforest secrets' revealing amazing facts and stories about some extraordinary insects such as exploding ants and jumping spiders.
