It was co-sponsored by the College of Plant Protection, the library, and the Insect Association of College of Plant Protection. The insect artwork exhibited in this event were the ample precious insect specimens that were collected by Liu Changming, faculty of College of Plant Protection, and his team after going deep into the Motuo county, which was in the hinterland of the Yarlung Zangbu grand canyon, and after experiencing landslide, rockfall, leech attack and many other difficulties. The exhibited artworks included wheat-cheirotonus, Tibet Katydids and other 6 orders and 11 families, 21 species. The event organisers hoped that readers can understand the real morphology of insects in a more direct way, and explore the close relationship between insects and human being, and carry forward the characteristics of insect culture in agriculture and forestry.
