All about edible insects: Edible insects; you may feel that these two words do not even belong in the same sentence. You have every right to be skeptical. In all probability, you have never deliberately eaten an insect. However you have probably inadvertently consumed over a pound of insects in your lifetime. There are a number of points that I would like to make:
  • Some insects are edible. In fact, most insects are edible, but there are a few species that are especially palatable, nutritious, and easily obtainable. I will concentrate on these. Many species of insects are lower in fat, higher in protein, and have a better feed to meat ratio than beef, lamb, pork, or chicken. Insects are tasty. Really! Even if you are too squeamish to have them as a main dish, you can make insect flour and add it to bread and other dishes for an added protein boost. Insects are easy to raise. There is no manure forking. No hay bale lifting. No veterinary bills. You can raise them in an apartment without getting complaints.

Welcome to the world of virtual insects!
If you like real insects, you would love virtual insects because you can see them big without a microscope. Virtual insects are clean and have no smell, they will not bite or sting you. And some times they look even better than real insects. Besides learning insects, you will learn new computer technology which is called virtual reality. Virtual reality is a computer interface that maximizes our natural perception abilities. Static two-dimensional images are often deceiving; it may be hard to reconstruct scales and distances between objects. Thus, it is important to implement the third dimension and to bring depth to objects. There are two major components of three-dimensional virtual reality:
  • Movement - our eye can easily reconstruct the third dimension if the object moves.

News Flash A New Insect Order Is Discovered There is much excitement in the entomological world at the momement as a new order of insects has just been discovered. To find out more visit the National Geographic news page. There are well over 1 million different known species of insects in the world, and some experts estimate that there might be as many as 10 million. They are divided up into 32 orders (depending on whose taxonomic system you use) of which the largest is the Beetles (Coleoptera) with 125 different families and around 500,000 species. In fact one in every four animal species on this planet is a beetle. Well everywhere on land anyway, very few insects have invaded the sea, though some like the Marine Flies (Halobates sp.) and the Seashore Collembolan Anurida maritma live on the surface and the larva of a small number of True Flies (Diptera) and Beetles (Coleoptera) live beneath the surface mostly in rockpools. On land though there isn't anyhere you can go that you can't find some insects living there, even in the frozen extremes of Arctica and Antartica you will some insects alive and active during the warmer months. You will find that insects are ubiquitous, they are in the soil beneath your feet, the air above your head, on and in the bodies of the plants and animals around you, as well as on and in you.

    This "project" has started as my desire to scan images of Finnish lepidoptera and make them available on the web. The original idea has evolved and is still evolving into different directions. From the lepidoptera I am expanding to other life forms, however the lepidoptera contains the most information. Other sections are mostly species lists

    ear insect collectors and web-wanderers, welcome to my world! This is the world of the beautiful butterflies and beetles, inhabiting the giant territory of the C.I.S. (ex-USSR space, The Commonwealth of the Independent States), the world of the magnificent undisturbed wildlife that I often see in my far expeditions, the world of the entomological science. I suppose that this would be the good idea to show my world to all interested persons, who are curious about the russian people and Russia, still far and enigmatic (for the "Western" people). I hope you will find a lot of interesting here, if you like wildlife and outdoors activity. So, welcome and enjoy!

    Welcome to Brisbane Insects and Spiders home page. We are the Chew's family. Our interest is to study insects and spiders in our local area in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. We go to the bush on weekends to watch and study insects and spiders. As the non-professionals, we record and comment on what we find. On the following pages, we are NOT going to tell you insects and spiders are different because they have six or eight legs, NOR the butterflies and moths are different because they have different antennae etc., because we sure you know all about this. Instead, by discussions , we try to find out why there are differences. We try to understand more about Evolution Please proceed and look at our works. Don't forget to give us some comments
    Dragonflies and Damselflies Order Odonata Their bodies are long and slender, usually with bright metallic colour. All of them have two pairs of membranous wings. Their hind wings and forewings are more or less similar size and shape. When they are at rest, the dragonflies held out theirs wings horizontally while damselflies help their wings vertically.

If it were not so slow and somber, one might be tempted to laugh at it. ANGELS AND INSECTS tells about the lives of naturalists and is set in England in 1864. The movie's purpose is to show the strong linkage between humans and insects. In one of the more pedantic editing jobs (Belinda Haas) in recent memory, we have frequent cuts between the horrors of the insect world and that of the human. Although there are several memorable insects scenes, perhaps the most dramatic is the immolation scene of the moths in the ubiquitous candles that lit the rooms of that era. A close second is a scene straight out of THE BIRDS but with moths instead of birds attaching the helpless female.
