About this book

Endocrine Interactions of Insect Parasites and Pathogens is one of the first books to concentrate specifically on the endocrine aspects of host/parasite and host/pathogen reactions. Written by well-known researchers in the field, Endocrine Interactions of Insect Parasites and Pathogens is an up-to-date compendium and provides a thorough review of the current research.
