The Genius of Bugs Nature, Non Fiction, Science and Discovery
They may be small, they may be creepy, but bugs have super-sized powers! Meet a roll call of some of New Zealand’s and the world’s most incredible bugs, from the cunning portia spider to the killer brain-surgeon wasp. Illustrated with up-close, dramatic bug photography throughout, The Genius of Bugs is a fresh take on the world of bugs, filled with bug tales, facts and figures that showcase bug ingenuity and reveal astounding bug behaviour. Biologist and award-winning author Simon Pollard draws on the latest research to reveal why, for example, the delicate dragonfly is four times better at catching prey than a lion, and how a beetle sets off an explosion in its bottom to defend itself. Featuring New Zealand and international examples, children will be entranced by these inspiring bugs and remarkable recent discoveries about their genius.
