Entomology is the scientific study of insects, a branch of zoology. Insects represent 75% of all animal species on the Archipelago. 20% of which are endemic. Ysabel, an entomology expert, working at the Natural History Museum of Funchal, gives us a sneak peek of curiosities about these little but very unique beings that live in Laurissilva forest.
