A complete, concise, up-to-date information source on insect endocrinology, aimed at all readership levels. The author surveys the many roles hormones play in the biology of insects, such as caste determination, migration, and control of moulting and metamorphosis.
Frederik Nijhout's book is the first comprehensive and concise review of insect endocrinology for more than twenty years. Much has changed and much has been added in those years, and Insect Hormones therefore fills more a yawning void than a gap. It is an incisive and well-written overview. en S. Robinson, The Times Literary Supplement This is an excellent and timely book which makes a major contribution to this branch of science. It brings together information about the workings of hormones that control almost every aspect of insect physiology. It is well written, and it will be essential reading for all with more than a passing interest in insect endocrinology, and is thoroughly recommended to students and researchers alike. n Edwards, New Scientist
