In Human-Insect Interaction, Sergey Govorushko begins with an important reminder: "Insects are the most numerous class of living organisms on Earth. You cannot find a human who is not in contact with them." Govorushko describes human-insect interaction encyclopedically, using tables, photographs, and maps, along with extensive in-text citations. [She] generates appreciation for insects and a deeper understanding of their role in the web of life, enumerating the anthropogenic threats faced by insects through pollution, climate change, habitat loss, pesticide use, monocrop agriculture, and the introduction of non-native species. She also highlights how the loss of insect populations will have unknown consequences for human welfare and well-being. -- Leslie Irvine, University of Colorado Boulder, in Symbolic Interaction (2019), ISSN: 0195-6086 print/1533-8665 online.
