This book attempts to reveal to readers the complex world of insects, of lonely individuals and strongly organized societies, of deceptions and hiding places, of war between the sexes and peculiar alliances. In this framework, he examines the reasons for the success of insects, their diversity, the enormous variety of functions they fulfill in nature; its amazing strategies to live, reproduce and defend itself in all environments, as well as its fascinating modes of communication; also explaining why some species become pests and how they can be controlled. Additionally, fully illustrated keys allow identification of common orders and families in the central region of Argentina.
Emerged as a recap of the classes taught by their authors at the UNC for several decades, this is probably the book on insects of greater scope and update available in our language. It is aimed at students and university professors and researchers of Biology and related subjects, middle level teachers in subjects related to this area of knowledge; as well as other readers interested in insects out of curiosity, as a hobby or as a complement to their activities. Thinking of all of them, he resorts to an entertaining writing and includes a glossary of entomological terms. Hoping they enjoy the multiple illustrations that accompany the text, they also include excellent images of local insects.
