The contributors present a diverse collection of chapters on basic research at the molecular level using Lepidoptera as model systems. This volume, however, is more than just a compendium of information about insect systems in general, or the Lepidoptera in particular. Each chapter is a self-contained treatment of a broad subject area, providing sufficient background information to give readers a sense of the guiding principles and central questions associated with each topic, in addition to major methodologies and findings. Comparisons with other major model systems are emphasized, with special attention given to the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster. Topics include: an historical overview of research using Lepidopteran models, silkworm genetics, mobile elements of Lepidopteran genomes, experimental embryogenesis and homeotic genes, hormone action in the central nervous system, the molecular genetics of moth olfaction, and use of engineered baculoviruses for basic biological studies and insect pest control.

Review:

"...succeeds extremely well in highlighting the research carried out with moths and butterflies and reminding the reader that these colorful creatures are really the unsung heroes of many contemporary lines of research." James B. Nardi, Science

"In conclusion, the book contains a diverse collection of chapters on basic research at the molecular level using lepidopteran model systems. The chapters are well written, each having a sound introduction that provides the setting for the detailed body of information to come. Though presumably aimed at the researcher and graduate student level, undoubtedly some chapters could form an excellent source of information for senior undergraduates....a valuable resource in university and research institution libraries." Bulletin of the Entomological Society of Canada
