Yellowstone, the crown jewel of America’s national park system, is visited annually by millions of sightseers from around the world, who are thrilled by the prospect of glimpsing bison herds, grizzly bears, elk, and other majestic wild creatures. However, the most spectacular wildlife may be the overlooked creatures at their feet. Ten incredible insect species from Yellowstone National Park will be examined and what ecological and evolutionary tricks they use to survive in a truly challenging wild landscape will be discussed.
