100 Insects of Arkansas and the Midsouth: Portraits & Stories (Paperback)
Most people don't notice insects. If they do, there is first a look of revulsion, followed by a search for something to swat with. But naturalists and teachers Norman and Cheryl Lavers know that if people had any idea how intricate and fascinating the life stories of insects can be, they might alter their attitudes. Through this premium color book, readers will be riveted by more than one hundred fifty incredible images taken over years of careful study and the stories thoughtfully collected about insects of Arkansas and the Midsouth like The Fiery Searcher, The Twice-Stabbed Lady Beetle, and the Ambush Bug. As you peek under leaf litter, learn to identify what flies across your path, listen for sounds on summer nights, and study insect weaponry and mimicry with the Lavers, prepare for your woodland walks to be forever changed.
When they're not in the woods, you'll find the Lavers sharing their enthusiasm for insects through presentations to Master Naturalists and Arkansas Audubon Society Adult Ecology Workshops, as well as with other groups. This book is the result of the nearly twenty years the couple has spent observing, enjoying, and teaching others about insects in the wilds and gardens of Arkansas and far beyond.
