Abstract

"

To know everything and to know nothing according as it acts under normal or exceptional conditions: that is the strange antithesis presented by the insect race." So said that profound student of insects, Fabre, after an immense amount of experimentation. No one has written so entertainingly about insects as has this great Frenchman; few have equaled and none excelled him in the wealth and variety of his observations upon them. But he was trained as a physicist and a mathematician and consequently, brought into his biological studies the viewpoint of the inorganic sciences.
