Insect Behaviours

Carl Zimmer has another of his terrific (in all senses of the word) posts on parasitic wasps and their victims. This time it’s about Glyptapanteles glyptapanteles. Definitely worth reading and his piece conveys not only the stuff of nightmares, but also a wonderful illustration of the workings of nature and the struggle for survival. 
 
I’ve just got his latest book Microcosm and already, after only a few pages, I know it’s going to be good.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
