INSECT DISSECTION

Revealing a blueprint for survival

Delve inside the amazing anatomy of bugs as this fascinating investigation reveals how insects have evolved to survive - and how discoveries made in insect labs are inspiring technology that will transform the human world.

Through a series of dissections combined with state-of-the-art imaging techniques, the programme examines at micro level the precision engineering hidden inside these extraordinary creatures. We may see them as pests, but the insects that outnumber us by 200 million to one are the supreme innovators of the animal world - without them ecosystems would collapse, crops would disappear, and waste would pile high.

Insect Dissection reveals exactly how they work and builds a complete picture of how insects have conquered the world.

ADVANCES IN SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY: HEALTH & MEDICINE - USING ANIMALS AND INSECTS IN MEDICINE

"Transgenic Chickens" - an essential chemical for hemophiliacs has been discovered to reside in a chicken's egg and is now readily and inexpensively available; "Leeches" - Leeches provide a dependable anti-coagulant to help prevent blood clots and consequent heart attacks; "Tissue Culture" - artificial skin, necessary for some forms of plastic surgery, is grown on membrane of a hen's egg; "Medicinal Maggots" - maggots can now be used as "instruments" to delicately clean wounds; "Dog Caregiver" - dogs can provide excellent care for anyone who is incapacitated, such as stroke victims; "Venomous Viper" - new knowledge about snake habits and their venom could help save many lives.

INSECT ID

Live-action video of two dozen orders of insects and their corresponding common species is provided. Identifying characteristics (mouth parts, antennae, and other unique features) are outlined. The following orders are just a few discussed: Collembola, Blattaria, Neuroptera, Homoptera and Diptera. Learn why all insects are bugs, but not all bugs are insects. View footage of some of the most well known insects combined with some of the most specialized species in the world.

ENTOMOLOGY: PART 3 - INSECT ORDERS, CLASSIFICATION & I.D.

The 26 main orders of insects are explored in this exciting new program. They include primitive insects such as Silverfish, Bristletails, and Springtails, along with winged insects such as Mayflies, Dragonflies, Stoneflies, Grasshoppers, Earwigs, Termites, True Bugs, Cicadas and Leafhoppers, Nerve-winged insects, Beetles, Butterflies, Moths, Bees, Ants and Wasps, along with Flies and Fleas. Scientific names and the main characteristics of each order are effectively shown.

ENTOMOLOGY: PART 4 - INSECT STRUCTURE, FUNCTION & METAMORPHOSIS

Students will learn the three types of metamorphosis: gradual, incomplete and complete, and see examples of insects in each group. Then students will explore the basic structure of insects, including the exoskeleton, antennae, eyes, mouthparts, leg parts, digestive and reproductive tracts. Also, see effective examples of insect defenses, such as high reproductive rates, camouflage, mimicry, and spines

ID & CLASSIFICATION OF INSECTS

Focusing on the scope and role of insects in the animal kingdom, the educational program provides viewers with the knowledge to enable them to identify and classify hundreds of insects. The instructor explains the purpose and work of entomologists and the importance- both beneficial and destructive- of insects within the environment. The expert demonstrates how to use characteristics and structures to identify insects for up to four classification levels. He uses both the pictorial and dichotomous taxonomic keys to identify insects.

INSECT METAMORPHOSIS & STRUCTURE

The program focuses on the structure of insects: body, head, thorax, abdomen, leg and wing. Aspects of four types of metamorphosis (none, gradual, incomplete and complete) are shown, noting differences in the insect's size and form after each molt. Microscopic views of important mouthparts, antennae and wings help illustrate concepts. Specific insects are used to help illustrate identification of concepts and structures: exoskeleton (carpet beetle), metamorphosis (silverfish, grasshopper, dragonfly, butterfly), body (cockroach, flea, walkingstick, lady beetle), head (sphinx moth) and wing (green stink bug).
