About this book

Summary of some of the most significant advances in arthropod endocrinology made in the last decade, brought together in a single volume for the first time.

...the editors have done a superb job and I highly recommend this text for both specialists and advance students in the areas of neurobiology, endocrinology, entomology, and evolution. Stan L. Smith, Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism
