About this book

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.

In prose that is both lucid and informed, Klowden provides a remarkably holistic yet detailed view of the most successful organisms on the planet. The author examines the 'hows' of insect systems and, equally importantly, offers answers to provocative evolutionary 'why' questions. ...Those seeking an integrated treatment of insect physiology will be richly rewarded with this author as a guide. Carol Sheppard, Dept of Entomology, Washington State University (December 2001) "This is an excellent text. It is concise in organization and there is uniformity of presentation of figures that is pleasing. It is very readable and contains some new information not available elsewhere. The viewpoint of the author is refreshing." INSECT PHYSIOLOGY ONLINE (December 2001)
