Summary:
Delve inside the amazing anatomy of bugs as this fascinating investigation reveals how insects have evolved to survive -- and how discoveries made in insect labs are inspiring technology that will transform the human world. Through a series of dissections combined with state-of-the-art imaging techniques, the program examines at micro level the precision engineering hidden inside these extraordinary creatures. We may see them as pests, but the insects that outnumber us by 200 million to one are the supreme innovators of the animal world -- without them ecosystems would collapse, crops would disappear, and waste would pile high. Insect Dissection reveals exactly how they work and builds a complete picture of how insects have conquered the world.
