Ninety-nine Gnats, Nits, and Nibblers

前表紙
University of Illinois Press, 1989 - 254 ページ
In this classic of natural history, National Medal of Science winner May Berenbaum weaves a web of spellbinding portraits that acquaints readers with the multitudes sharing our world and, alas, our kitchen. Go small or go home as Berenbaum reveals:
Why the "Jesus bug" can walk on water
How the katydid's nighttime noise inspired romantic poetry
The trapping prowess of the hungry antlion
That disgusting thing chiggers do to eat your skin

A witty and educational guide that's as accessible as the container of flour you should have closed more tightly, Ninety-nine Gnats, Nits, and Nibblers is the fascinating story of our million closest neighbors.
