Biologist Thomas Eisner has spent a lifetime studying insects; he is a pioneer in chemical ecology and has taught at Cornell University for more than 40 years. Eisner studies the chemical interactions of organisms, and he has a new book, For Love of Insects, that gathers images and ideas from his research. NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Eisner.
