INSECTS



CLASS INSECTA

Insects (Class Insecta) are the biggest class of arthropods and the only ones with wings. They are the most diverse group
of animals on the planet. They are most diverse at the equator and their diversity declines toward the poles.
With over a million described species—more than half of all known living organisms with estimates of undescribed species
as high as 30 million, thus potentially representing over 90% of the differing life forms on the planet.
Insects may be found in nearly all environments on the planet, although only a small number of species occur in the oceans,
a habitat dominated by another arthropod group, the crustaceans.
