Beetles North-South - Art as Insect Index!

Recently we talked about how studying the evolution of lice was used to date key events in human evolution....

Along that vein of interesting cross-connections, this article talks about how an insect biologist who is also an avid historic print collector tracked down not only the species-level cause of holes in wood printing blocks (those pesky beetle larvae!), but also how different species have changed their geographic ranges over the past few centuries. Fascinating!
