Its near impossible for us to comprehend 200,000,000 x 7,000,000,000 = 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 insects and so we are not living within a bird world and we are not living within a fish world and we are not living within a cat and dog world and we are not living within a human being world either for we are most definitely living within a world of insects that have ruled and dominated this planet earth for almost 500,000,000 years and as if by evolutionary accident we have temporarily arisen between cyclic ice age glaciations while vast and countless insects live on and on and on > http://www.si.edu/Encyclopedia_SI/nmnh/b...bugnos.htm


Quote: It has long been recognized and documented that insects are the most diverse group of organisms, meaning that the numbers of species of insects are more than any other group. In the world, some 900 thousand different kinds of living insects are known. This representation approximates 80 percent of the world's species.

The true figure of living species of insects can only be estimated from present and past studies. Most authorities agree that there are more insect species that have not been described (named by science) than there are insect species that have been previously named. Conservative estimates suggest that this figure is 2 million, but estimates extend to 30 million.

In the last decade, much attention has been given to the entomofauna that exists in the canopies of tropical forests of the world. From studies conducted by Terry Erwin of the Smithsonian Institution's Department of Entomology in Latin American forest canopies, the number of living species of insects has been estimated to be 30 million.

Insects also probably have the largest biomass of the terrestrial animals. At any time, it is estimated that there are some 10 quintillion (10,000,000,000,000,000,000) individual insects alive. Recent figures indicate that there are more than 200 million insects for each human on the planet! A recent article in The New York Times claimed that the world holds 300 pounds of insects for every pound of humans.
