The legs (and wings, if applicable) are attached to the thorax. Insects breathe through holes called spiracles. Insects hatch from eggs. Insect means "segmented" in Latin. There are about a million different types of insects and many more that have not been discovered yet. Insects (Class Insecta) are currently divided into

News Flash A New Insect Order Is Discovered There is much excitement in the entomological world at the momement as a new order of insects has just been discovered. To find out more visit the National Geographic news page. There are well over 1 million different known species of insects in the world,
and some experts estimate that there might be as many as 10 million. All these species are divided up into about 32 orders, depending on whose taxonomic system you use, of which, the largest is the Beetles, or Coleoptera, with 125 different families and around 500,000 species they are an incredibly diverse group of animals. In fact, one in every four animal species on this planet is a beetle. Well, everywhere on land anyway, very few insects have colonised the sea, though some like the Marine Flies ( Halobates sp .) and the Seashore Collembolan, Anurida maritma , live on the surface. Also the larva of a small number of True Flies (Diptera) and Beetles (Coleoptera) live beneath the surface, mostly in rockpools. On the land however there isn't anyhere you can go that you can't find some insects, even in the frozen extremes of Arctica and Antartica you will find some insects alive and active during the warmer months.

All About Insects
The most diverse group of animals on the planet, insects are generally classified as any of numerous invertebrate animals that are a member of the phylum Arthropoda, and of the class Insecta. Modern insects range in size from less than a millimeter to over 18 centimeters in size. An insect’s adult body in characterized by three pairs of legs and a body segmented into a head, thorax, and abdomen, and usually two pairs of wings. Virtually all insects are born from an egg laid by their mother. Some of the most common and well known insect species include flies, crickets, mosquitoes, beetles, butterflies, and bees. There are approximately 5,000 dragonfly species, 2,000 praying mantis, 20,000 grasshopper, 170,000 butterfly and moth, 120,000 fly, 82,000 true bug, 350,000 beetle, and 110,000 bee and ant species that have been discovered to this date, for a total of more than 925,000 species. It is estimated that there could be as many as 15-30 million species of insects that have yet to be discovered by science. The scientific study of insects is also known as entomology.

    The Topic:
    Insects Easier - Insects are small creatures (animal kingdom) with three pair of legs, a body with three main sections, and tough shell-like outer covering. Insects do not have a backbone. Most have one or two pair of wings and a pair of antennae. Harder - Insects first appeared on earth at least 400 million years ago. Today, they live almost everywhere, from steamy tropical jungles to cold polar regions. Entomologists (scientists who study insects) estimate that the average number of insects for each square mile (2.6 square kilometers) of land equals the total number of people on the earth. Scientists have identified and named more than 11/2 million species of animals. Of these, about 1 million are insects. Entomologists discover from 7,000 to 10,000 new species of insects each year. Some believe there may be from 1 million to 10 million species still undiscovered. In the world of entomology, there are still vast frontiers of knowledge still to be discovered. All insects have three pairs of legs, a body divided into three main parts (head, thorax, and abdomen) and an exoskeleton. The insect's muscles are attached to the inside wall of the exoskeleton. The exoskeleton does not grow with an insect; therefore in time, the exoskeleton becomes too tight and must be shed in a process is called molting. Most adult insects have two large compound eyes, made up of separate, sometimes thousands of lenses. Insects are the only animals besides birds and bats to have wings. Most adult insects have two (flies) or four wings (wasps). Their sense of smell is located chiefly in the antennae. A few insects, like ants, bees, and wasps, also have taste organs on their antennae.

They are a tremendously successful group. Insects can be found in almost all terrestrial and freshwater habitats, from the driest deserts to freshwater ponds, from the canopy of a tropical rainforest (where their diversity is unbelievably great) to the arctic wastes. A few species are even marine. Their feeding habits are similarly varied; almost any substance that has nutritive value is eaten by some group of insects. Insects also show huge variety in shape and form. Almost the only condition their group does not attain is very large body size. A number of features, however, are shared by most kinds of living insects. In addition to the general characteristics of uniramians, these include a body composed of three tagmata, a head, thorax, and abodmen; a pair of relatively large compound eyes and usually three ocelli located on the head; a pair of antennae, also on the head; mouthparts consisting of a labrum, a pair of mandibles, a pair of maxillae, a labium, and a tonguelike hypopharynx; two pairs of wings, derived from outgrowths of the body wall (unlike any vertebrate wings); and three pairs of walking legs.

The root of the current tree connects the organisms featured in this tree to their containing group and the rest of the Tree of Life. The basal branching point in the tree represents the ancestor of the other groups in the tree. This ancestor diversified over time into several descendent subgroups, which are represented as internal nodes and terminal taxa to the right. You can click on the root to travel down the Tree of Life all the way to the root of all Life, and you can click on the names of descendent subgroups to travel up the Tree of Life all the way to individual species.
