Insect Life in the Amazon Country





Entomology, Taxonomy, Animal Behaviour, Collecting, Design, Natural Theology

    Describes some of the exotic range of insects and fearful insect behaviour that the author encountered in the Amazon region. Concludes by emphasising that although some insects 'cause a shudder', every one 'has been created by the all-wise God for some specific beneficent purpose' and like 'every member of Nature is actively employed in a special work for which it alone is best adapted'.
