Nearly two dozen aquatic biologists share their memorable encounters with stream insects in Wading for Bugs. The writings in Wading for Bugs let readers to experience – through the eyes of the scientists – what it’s like to study stream insects and to make discoveries that could positively affect stream health. Each insect order is introduced with a general summary, and elegant insect drawings accompany each story, along with morphological, life history, and habitat information for each species or family.
