About this book

This edited volume is the first comprehensive effort to compile the various aspects of insect immunity'. In the past two decades the immunological studies on insects have taken shape and developed as a special branch of insect study. The various groups of scientists in different parts of the world have produced good qualitative and quantitative work in this branch to establish a new field of research. This book compiles the 12 different aspects of insect immunity: structure, classification and function of insect haemocytes, population of haemocytes, isolation of pure population of insect haemocytes, role of haemocytes in defense mechanism, humoral encapsulation, the inducible humoral antibacterial immunity, genetic investigation of cellular immune reactions, interaction between the endocrine system and immune system, the prophenol-oxidase activating system and its role in cellular communication, haemagglutinin, suppression of the insect immune system, etc.The volume provides available research on the subject and is designed to provide information to keep students and non-specialists up to date and to serve as a starting point for fresh research. The authors have also indicated the future prospects of research in the field of insect immunity'.
