This stunning insight into the micro world of the minibeasts reveals the critical roles they play in our past, present and future survival. These true rulers of our world are complex, highly advanced creatures which are integral to our ecology. Simply put, without the invertebrates (insects) and other tiny critters, humans would not survive. 

While outlining the importance of the minibeast world, this book is also a visual feast of detail and colour, capturing form and behaviour that the naked eye isn’t able to see when encountering these small creatures. The result is a book that captivates the reader while inspiring a new appreciation for these magnificent animals.

Each chapter focuses on a specific aspect of minibeasts and includes introductory text, images and informative captions. Topics covered include the jobs minibeasts perform that enable species’ to exist, and the ways in which they have evolved to suit their environments. From medical drugs to hi-tech robotics, minibeasts provide a wealth of material for humans to draw on to help solve our 21st-century problems. We borrow ideas from them in the fields of biotechnology, engineering and design, and they are essential to our continued evolution. 

Lavishly illustrated with breath-taking macro photography, the awe-inspiring lives and physiologies of minibeasts are presented in an engaging, fascinating take on life on earth.
