As the largest living group on earth, insects can provide us with insight into adaptation, evolution, and survival. The 2nd edition of this standard text for insect physiology courses and entomologists provides the most comprehensive analysis of the systems that make insects important contributors to our environment. Physiological Systems in Insects discusses the role of insect molecular biology, nueroendocrinology, biochemistry, and genetics in our understanding of insects. Organized according to insect physiological functions, this book is fully updated with the latest and foundational research that has influenced understanding of the patterns and processes of insects.

Physiological Systems in Insects is an overview of the biological basis for the preeminent role played by insects in global ecology. The indisputable importance of insects in human health and agriculture, as well as their dominant place in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, makes an understanding of insects important not only to entomologists but also to all biologists. Insects serve as excellent models of basic physiology because of the uncanny similarities between the processes in insects and vertebrates. Although insects constitute a very diverse group of animals, the text considers the broad functional aspect of their success without delving into their classification. It thus provides a wealth of information in an easy-to-read format.
* Comprehensive descriptions of physiological systems
* Clear figures adapted from scientific reports
* Glossary of physiological terms
* Complete references to past and present research
