BUGS RULE!
An Introduction to the World of Insects

Whitney Cranshaw & Richard Redak


"Breadth classes dealing with insects have been extremely popular among science and nonscience majors for decades. The photographs, illustrations, little known facts, and sidebars in BUGS RULE! bring to life the fascinating world of insects. BUGS RULE! is an excellent text for the nonscience major and general nature enthusiast.”
—Michael K. Rust, University of California, Riverside
