Ever been tempted by the thought of trying juicy deep fried mealworms, proteinrich cricket flower, or swapping your Walkers for salt and vinegar flavoured grasshoppers? If so then you are not alone! Over 2 billion people regularly eat insects as part of their diet, and the world is home to around 1,900 edible insect species. For adventurous foodies and daring dieters comes the newest way to save the planet, eat more protein, and tickle taste buds. But this isn’t an insect cookbook. Instead it’s an informative field guide: exploring the origins of insect eating, offering tips on finding edible bugs and serving up a few delicious ideas of how to eat them once you’ve tracked them down! It includes a comprehensive list on edible insects and where to find them, how to prepare them, their versatile usage and nutritional value as well as a few recipes. A bug-eating checklist covering all known edible bugs so readers can mark off the ones they’ve eaten and seek out new delicacies concludes the book. This is a perfect introduction to the weird, wonderful, and adventurous side of entomophagy.

Diese Studie untersucht für den deutschsprachigen Raum, ob seitens der Verbraucherinnen und Verbraucher eine Akzeptanz für Insekten als Nahrungsmittel gegeben ist. Die Erkenntnisse zeigen deutlich, dass nur eine Minderheit bereit wäre, Insekten in das alltägliche Ernährungsverhalten zu integrieren. Seit einigen Jahren finden Insekten in der menschlichen Ernährung auch in westlichen Ländern verstärkt Beachtung. Zahlreiche Studien belegen die ökologischen Vorteile einer insektenbasierten Ernährung im Vergleich zu Fleisch aus herkömmlichen Nutztieren wie Rind, Schwein oder Huhn. Es fehlt an entsprechendem Wissen über den Nutzen und die korrekte Zubereitung von Insekten. Die Erkenntnisse dieser Studie können helfen, Strategien zur Erhöhung der Konsumentenakzeptanz von Entomophagie im deutschen Sprachraum zu entwickeln.

»Ein wunderbares Buch über den besten Freund des Menschen unter den Insekten...« Edward O. Wilson Die Bienenkönigin ist keine absolute Herrscherin. Im Gegenteil: Bienen entscheiden alle gemeinsam als Schwarm, sie erforschen kollektiv einen Sachverhalt und debattieren lebhaft, um letztlich einen Konsens zu finden. Der bekannte Verhaltensforscher Thomas D. Seeley untersucht seit Jahrzehnten in akribischer Kleinarbeit das Leben der Bienen. In seinem spannend geschriebenen Buch zeigt er anschaulich, was wir von diesen wunderbaren Insekten lernen können und dass die Entscheidung mehrerer klüger als die Einzelner sein kann. Ein reich bebildertes, ebenso faszinierendes wie anregendes Buch. »Seeleys Enthusiasmus und Bewunderung für Bienen sind ansteckend, seine Forschungen meisterhaft.« New York Times »Brillant.« Nature »Fesselnd und bezaubernd.« Science »Das hinreißendste Wissenschaftsbuch des Jahres.« Financial Times
