Milman, Oliver. The Insect Crisis: The Fall of the Tiny Empires That Run the World. 2022.

From ants scurrying under leaf litter to bees able to fly higher than Mount Kilimanjaro, insects are everywhere.  Three out of every four of our planet's known animal species are insects.  Milman dives into the torrent of recent evidence that suggests this kaleidoscopic group of creatures is suffering the greatest existential crisis in its remarkable 400-million-year history.  What is causing the collapse of the insect world?  Why does this alarming decline pose such a threat to us? And, what can be done to stem the loss of the miniature empires that hold aloft life as we know it?
