Beetles (89) More files... by Dr. Mark W. Moffett
Marvels of diversity, beetles inhabit rain forests, ice fields, and desert sands. There are some 350,000 described species, a number that may ultimately reach into the millions. Small and mostly inconspicuous, beetles can nevertheless be viewed as evolution's biggest success story. About one-fourth of all animal species on Earth are beetles, an order that ecompasses the bizarre, the desctructive, the attractive and the beneficial.
