To most people they’re just bugs

Thanks to Science Blog today for the summary of an article in BioScience – as usual, seems you have to be a ‘member’ to read the BioScience article.

The paper provides some thoughts on the contributions insects make to society. It seems, in the US alone, the contribution of insects is at least $57 Billion, despite the losses from pests. Science Blog’s post is short, but it’s well worth the time for a read.

This must be national insect day or something, because just this morning I came across a link to Igor Siwanowicz and his collection of insect photos . Wow. Who says insects can’t be cute 😉

Of course, I spent quite a bit of my career studying insects, and I might be a tad biased.
