Buchtipp des Monats September: Kosmos Himmelsjahr 2012: Sonne, Mond und Sterne im Jahreslauf

Weltmacht Insekten

Weltmacht Insekten

Weltmacht Insekten

Seit mehr als 400 Millionen Jahren bevölkern sie unsere Erde und werden dies wohl auch bis an ihr Ende tun. So erfolgreich wie Ameisen, Käfer, Fliegen und Co ist sonst niemand auf unserem Planeten. Mehr als 80 Prozent aller Tierarten sind Insekten. Ob Wüste, Hochgebirge, Ozean oder Antarktis, es gibt keine ökologische Nische die sie nicht erobert haben. Es gibt Schätzungsweise eine Trillionen Insekten, 143 Milliarden mal mehr Individuen als Menschen auf der Erde. Würde man eine gigantische Waage bauen, alle Insekten der Erde auf eine Seite packen und alle anderen Lebewesen auf die andere, so währen Ameisen, Schmetterlinge und Kollegen tatsächlich schwerer als Elefanten, Wale und Konsorten.

Für den enormen Erfolg der Insekten kann man mehrere Eigenschaften verantwortlich machen. Zum Einen haben sie eine sehr festes Außenskelett, den Chitinpanzer, welcher die Insekten verhältnismäßig zur Größe sehr kräftig macht und sie vor dem Austrocknen schütz. Zum Anderen ermöglicht ihre geringe Körpergröße in Lebensräume vorzustoßen, die für Wirbeltiere unzugänglich sind. Auch mit Futterknappheiten kommen sie besser zurecht, da sie einen sehr geringen Energieverbrauch haben. Insekten waren die ersten Lebewesen die sich den Luftraum zu Nutze machten. Durch diese Fähigkeit können sie sich über weite Strecken verbreiten und vor bestimmten Problemen einfach fliehen. Ein weiteres Erfolgsgeheimnis der kleinen Krabbeltiere ist, dass sie sich schnell fortpflanzen können. Einige Insekten können bei günstigem Klima und guten Nahrungsverhältnissen sich innerhalb weniger Wochen vertausendfachen. Auch ihr vielfältiges Nahrungsspektrum wird ihnen zum Vorteil. Viele Insekten sind Allesfresser und verspeisen alles von Pflanzen und Fleisch über Aas bis hin zu Kot.

Im Laufe der Evolution haben sich bei den sechsbeinigen Wesen einige verblüffende Kuriositäten entwickelt. Wie etwa bei den Schmetterlingen. So gibt es Arten mit „gläsernen“ Flügeln. Hierbei sind die Flügelschuppen so klein, dass das Sonnenlicht hindurch scheint und die Flügel durchsichtig wirken. Dies hat den Vorteil, dass Fressfeinde die Falter nur schwer ausfindig machen können. Manche Schmetterlingsraupen haben eine Musterung und „Scheinaugen“ wie die einer Schlange, mit denen sie Fressfeinden das Fürchten lehren. Andere Schmetterlinge imitieren giftige Artgenossen oder andere gefährliche Insekten. Wie etwa der Hornissenschwärmer, der einer Hornisse zum verwechseln ähnlich sieht, aber völlig harmlos ist. Mimikry nennt man dieses Tarnverhalten ungiftiger Arten, mit der Absicht das Fressfeinde die Finger von den vermeintlich giftigen Tieren lassen.

Das größte lebende Insekt ist eine Stabheuschrecke mit einer Gesamtkörperlänge von bis zu 60 Zentimetern. Kaum ein Fressfeind traut sich an solch ein großes Tier heran, weshalb sie Ihre Tarnung als dünnen Ast eigentlich gar nicht nötig hätte. Die kleinsten bekannten Arten sind Vertreter der zu den Käfern gehörenden Federflügler sowie Erzwespen mit Körperlängen von nur 0,2 Millimetern. Die kürzeste Lebensdauer im Insektenreich haben Eintagsfliegen. Die Tiere schlüpfen mit funktionslosen Beisswerkzeugen, mit denen sie keinerlei Nahrung aufnehmen können. Ihr kurzes Dasein dient lediglich der sofortigen Paarung und Eiablage. Weiblichen Eintagsfliegen bleibt dazu gerade mal 5 Minuten!

Die größte Extravaganz im Körperbau hat Mutter Natur aber wohl den tropischen Buckelzirpen geschenkt. Hier scheint die Natur Humor gehabt zu haben, denn die Zirpen tragen pompöse Rückenschilde oder ähnliche Auswüchse. Zum Teil sehen sie aus wie ein Hubschrauber auf Beinen, ein Hirsch mit Flügeln oder Darstellungen von Ur-Atomen. Andere Arten tragen kugelähnliche Gebilde an einem sternartigen Auswuchs auf einer Art “Antenne”. Manch eine Buckelzirpenart sieht gar aus wie ein Stück Holz oder ein Klumpen Dreck, so sind sie bestens getarnt.
