Author Biography

Paul D. Brock is an entomologist and a scientific associate at the Natural History Museum, London. Most at home in the field, he spends much of his time watching and studying insects in great detail in order to learn more about them and to record their behaviour on camera. A renowned author of insect books and a widely published photographer, he is a world authority on stick-insects and leaf-insects, with a genus and several species named after him.
