About the Author

Jiri Kolibac has had a lifelong fascination with the natural sciences, particularly marine life and insects. As a child, he was fascinated by the natural sciences, especially sea life, and because he lived so far away from it, he studied the ecology of mammals (at the Czech Academy of Sciences), graduating with a doctoral degree in the zoology of vertebrates in 1992. Having published on beetles during his student days, Jiri returned to the Moravian Museum to focus on the paleontology and evolution of beetles. As an active sportsman, he enjoys kayaking, diving, skiing, and tending to his bonsai collection. He is currently the Head of Entomology at the Moravian Museum in Brno, Czech Republic.

Pavel Dvorsky is a Czech commercial and graphic artist who has illustrated dozens of science and popular science publications. From 1966-1972, he studied Illustration at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, and afterward returned to Brno, where he established the Department of Graphic Design and Illustration at the Secondary School for Art and Design. In reconstructing the prehistoric world, Dvorsky has collaborated with many anthropologists and archeologists. In addition to his commercial and graphic artwork, he has designed stamps for the Czech Post Office since 2004. He was born in Brno in 1946.

This book is packed full of information. Scientific (but
down-to-earth), well-researched and very thorough. Beautiful artistic
renderings not only capture the insects, but also show them in their natural
environments carrying out everyday activities. - Erica Baxter
