An Introduction to the Insects of Borneo
With an estimated three million species, insects are by far the most diverse forms of organisms on the planet. The greatest diversity are found in the tropics, and Borneo is a hotspot for some of the most amazing and varied forms. Because no field guide books exist on Bornean insects, many naturalists and guides are faced with a daunting task when it comes to identifying species they encounter here. In this workshop we will learn an overview of the insect orders and families that can be found in Borneo, discuss techniques for their field identification, and learn about their fascinating behavior and adaptations.
