Insekten gibt es überall, in den höchsten Höhen und den tiefsten Höhlen, in Wäldern, Wiesen und Bergen. Sie leben in der Wüste, unter der Eisdecke eines zugefrorenen Sees, in den Nasenlöchern eines Walrosses und sogar in Computern. Die faszinierenden Wesen sind winzig klein und funktionieren doch hochkomplex. Sie tragen ihr Skelett außen am Körper wie eine Rüstung, ...[Read More]

To avoid exposure to these pathogens, we must understand which species are involved, what regulates their abundance, ...[Read More]

»Ich liebe den Geruch von Ameisensäure.« (Christina Grätz)

Sie bringen mehr Biomasse auf die Waage als alle Säugetiere der Welt zusammen, und doch stehen sie auf der Roten Liste. Ameisen sind in Deutschland hochgradig gefährdet.
