German Mantodea research article for kids

GEOlino, Germany’s biggest science and nature journal for kids, published an article on Mantodea research in the April issue. It describes Frank Wieland’s and Kai Schütte’s work on mantodean systematics and morphology. In addition to the article there is an online movie clip presenting pictures of mantises, the entomology collection of the Zoological Museum of Hamburg as well as an interview with Frank talking about mantis research.
