Extraordinary Insects – Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson

In conversation with Professor Mike Siva-Jothy

Earth is the planet of insects and this is their extraordinary story. They are essential to sustaining life on earth – they give us food and uphold ecosystems. Their private lives are full of wonder from musical mating rituals to cultivating fungi for food. They preceded the dinosaurs, outnumber the grains of sand on all the world’s beaches and they will be here long after us.

Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson is a Professor at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences.
