Introduction
Entomology, Taxonomy, Cerambycidae, Chrysomelidae, Systematic, Biodiversity, Zoogeography-----Insect science is such a love that a lifetime is not enough for it. To obtain and make sense of insects and information about them, which are indispensable for our lives, I think it is a real guide that will enable us humans and humanity to understand and apply the techniques and tools of the earth life in the most accurate way. The answer to the question of where and how to live is available in insects
