, : The bushman as an entomologist. Antenna London 22(1): 4-8

A summary is given of the author's personal experience of the Ju/'hoansi Bushmen while spending 7 months in the Nyae Nyae area of Eastern Bushmanland, Namibia, during 1993-94. The report describes the use of Diamphidia nigroornata and Polyclada flexuosa in the production of poison arrows, the use of insects in medicine (e.g.
