Secret weapons : defenses of insects, spiders, scorpions, and other many-legged creatures by Thomas Eisner ( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Part handbook, part field guide, part photo album, Secret Weapons chronicles the diverse and often astonishing defensive strategies that have allowed insects, spiders, scorpions, and other many-legged creatures not just to survive, but to thrive." "In sixty-nine chapters, each illustrated with photographs culled from Thomas Eisner's legendary collection, we meet a largely North American cast of anthropods - as well as a few of their kin from Australia, Europe, and Asia - and observe at firsthand the nature and extent of the defenses that lie at the root of their evolutionary success. Here are the cockroaches and termites, the carpenter ants and honeybees, and all the miniature creatures in between, deploying their sprays and venom, froth and feces, camouflage and sticky coatings. And along with a marvelous bug's-eye view of how these secret weapons actually work, here is a close-up look at the science behind them, from taxonomy to chemical formulas, as well as an appendix with instructions for studying chemical defenses at home. Whether dipped into here and there or read cover to cover, Secret Weapons will prove invaluable to hands-on-researchers and amateur naturalists alike, and will captivate any reader for whom nature is a source of wonder."--BOOK JACKET
