Insects dominate almost all ecosystems on our planet. One of the factors that has contributed to their astonishing success has been their small size. It was therefore significant that this year saw the NBAIR discovering Kikiki huna, an egg parasitoid, the smallest insect on earth capable of flying. This rare insect is not known from most parts of the world. It is just one of the treasures unearthed by the NBAIR during the last year. Taxonomists of the Bureau regularly survey different agroecosystems including North East, Andamans and Western Ghats for their unique insect fauna and many taxa not known in India have been discovered and documented. read more
