Bugwise for schools brings the world of invertebrates to your students, engaging them in real science in local environments. Find out what insects and spiders you are sharing your schools with and why they are vitally important to a healthy planet.


Bugwise Invertebrate Guide

Use this at-a-glance Bugwise Invertebrate Guide to identify insects, spiders and other invertebrates. Designed to help people who need to identify terrestrial (land) invertebrates, it provides illustrations with notes on behaviour and common misidentifications for each invertebrate group. This added information may allow identification of invertebrate groups without the need to collect them. The guide deals with common invertebrate groups found on land, as well as some of the lesser encountered groups such as web spinners and stylops. This is based on the print guide prepared by Australian Museum staff working on invertebrate behaviour, taxonomy and ecology.
