Synopsis

As we begin to appreciate the significance of ecosystems in preserving environmental equilibrium, insects are increasingly being acknowledged as a useful resource for sustainable food production, by reducing pressure on other resources and transforming waste into valuable materials for food, feed, and fertiliser.
