About this book

Includes articles by a host of respected contributors in the field and covers such topics as embryonic development, hormonal control of form and function of the nervous system, programmed cell death, organization of the endocrine system, and much more. The articles are specially selected by the known and respected editor-in-chief of the original major reference work Comprehensive Molecular Insect Science.

Classic reviews offer essential coverage of development as it relates to metamorphosis, molting and morphogenesis. An introduction by the editor puts the selected body of work in context, highlighting the need for entomologists, developmental biologists and related researchers to have these valuable reviews in their personal collection.
