Insects are Key Players in the Circle of Life

 Here's a visual I made that shows the relative abundance of arthropod species (Insects and Other Bugs) compared to the number of species in other class groups within the Kingdom Animalia. I know there are a variety of categories within "Other Bugs," but this depiction is for simplicity in a way that young kids can make quick sense of. Insects truly have taken over the world, and we could not have life as we know it (or perhaps at all!) without them.
