Insecta Kingdom - Homeopathic Themes


INSECTA = Invertebrates, these are animals without a backbone.

All insects belong to the phylum Arthropoda. But unlike other arthropods—insects have segmented bodies, an exoskeleton, one pair of antennae, and (usually) one or two pairs of wings.

This is by far the largest group in the animal kingdom: 97% percent of all animals are invertebrates. So far, 1.25 million species have been discovered. Insects live in nearly every habitat, and it’s estimated that there are currently 10 quintillion insects on the globe. Entomologists estimate four million are still uncategorised.
