Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Insect collecting is the collection of insects for hobby, scientific study or profit. Historically insect collecting has been widespread and a very popular educational hobby. Insect collecting has left traces in European cultural history, literature and songs (e.g., Georges Brassens: "La chasse aux papillons" ("The hunt for butterflies"). The practice is still widespread in Japan, especially amongst the youth demographic. Since most types of insects have hard exoskeletons that retain their appearance after the insects dies, it is easy and practical to form a collection. With many thousands of colorful and attractive species known, a collection may become quite large.show more
