Dazzling Diversity


What is the most diverse group of animals on the planet? Insects! They constitute more than two-thirds of all described animal species—and there are more waiting to be discovered! The Smithsonian Libraries' Dazzling Diversity exhibit at the National Museum of Natural History celebrates the insect world through the pages of historic natural history books. August 8, 2017 - September 2018
