As the world's leading authority on wasps, Howard Ensign Evans' lifelong study of this creature was only one aspect of his life as an acclaimed scientist and author. For readers, he illuminated the otherworldly lives of humble creatures in such popular books as Life on a Little-Known Planet, Wasp Farm, and Pioneer Naturalists. Before his death in 2002 at the age of 83, Evans and his wife and frequent collaborator, Mary Alice Evans, assembled this final collection of essays (many previously published) in The Man Who Loved Wasps. From Evans' observations at "Wasp Farm," to his admiration for the magpie or his fascination with fireflies, to the amusingly entitled "Intellectual and Emotional World of the Cockroach," each essay reveals the natural world, described by one for whom its magic never diminished. For Evans, the great mysteries, the great discoveries were not to be found in outer space: "I am an astronaut, walking on the best of planets, seeing things never seen before." It is fitting that in this final book, readers are once more transported by his wide-ranging expeditions, which include his first backyard in Ithaca, New York; numerous rivers, canyons, and rock outcroppings in the West; his backyard in the Colorado Rockies; and the wilds of Australia.

In his new preface E. O. Wilson reflects on how he came to write this book: how The Insect Societies led him to write Sociobiology, and how the political and religious uproar that engulfed that book persuaded him to write another book that would better explain the relevance of biology to the understanding of human behavior.

The cockroach is truly an evolutionary wonder. This definitive volume provides a complete overview of suborder Blattaria, highlighting the diversity of these amazing insects in their natural environments. Beginning with a foreword by E. O. Wilson, the book explores the fascinating natural history and behavior of cockroaches, describing their various colors, sizes, and shapes, as well as how they move on land, in water, and through the air. In addition to habitat use, diet, reproduction, and behavior, Cockroaches covers aspects of cockroach biology, such as the relationship between cockroaches and microbes, termites as social cockroaches, and the ecological impact of the suborder. With over 100 illustrations, an expanded glossary, and an invaluable set of references, this work is destined to become the classic book on the Blattaria. Students and research entomologists can mine each chapter for new ideas, new perspectives, and new directions for future study.
