Insects in Ecosystems
Insects are the largest and most diverse assemblage of organisms on the planet.
They occupy every possible niche within the food web and have evolved their
bodies to aid in their exploitation of different food sources. This
workshop explores how insects interact with other organisms, including us,
in the web of life. We examine different examples of symbiotic relationships,
how insects impact on our way of life (both positively and negatively) and
explore their great diversity of habitats and food choices.
This is a great workshop for introducing concepts such as symbiosis, food webs, evolution and diversity.
