Employing the clear, student-friendly style that made previous editions so popular, Insect Physiology and Biochemistry, Third Edition presents an engaging and authoritative guide to the latest findings in the dynamic field of insect physiology. The book supplies a comprehensive picture of the current state of the function, development, and reproduction of insects. Expanded and updated, this third edition continues to challenge conventional entomological wisdom with the latest research and analytical interpretations. It will appeal to undergraduate and graduate students and to working scientists in the biological sciences who need to possess a firm knowledge of the broad principles of insect physiology. See What’s New in the Third Edition: New chapters covering biological rhythms and insect symbioses Adds references from the last several years to bring each chapter up to date Provides new review and self-study questions that aid in distinguishing the most important information and concepts References to websites where illustrative materials have been provided by scientists and contains approximately 2,600 citations Twenty-four pages of color illustrations with new illustrations that emphasize genetic and molecular developments in insect biology Update of the rapidly developing area of postembryonic development of insects, especially the role of the juvenile hormone in insect development While this edition provides new information and significant updates, it also maintains all the features that made previous editions so popular, such as citations that enable you to get to the primary literature easily and understand the thinking, experimentation, and techniques that have enabled the current understanding of the physiology of insects. And clear writing with technical terms explained in the text where they occur. With more than 250 illustrations to help explain physiological concepts and important anatomical details, the book remains the most easily accessible guide to key concepts in the field.

Obwohl oder gerade weil eine kaum mehr überschaubare Zahl von Publi kationen auf dem Gebiet der Immobilisierung von Biokatalysatoren existiert, ist es für den Anfänger, der einen Einstieg sucht, auf diesem Gebiet oft schwer, geeignete Informationen aus der Flut von Originalarbeiten herauszufinden. Einige gute, fast immer aber eng lischsprachige Monographien sind entweder außerordentlich umfang reich und teuer, oder sie behandeln nur ausgewählte Teilaspekte der Immobilisierung. Dem will die vorliegende Einführung abhelfen. Sie soll dem Leser zu einem raschen Überblick verhelfen und ihm den inzwischen abgesicherten Kenntnisstand nach Art eines kurzen Lehr buches vermitteln. Das Buch ist aus Erfahrungen in Vorlesungen, Praktika und Kursen entstanden. Es soll sich maßgeblich an Lernende wenden, auch wenn "Immobilisierte Biokatalysatoren" bisher noch nicht zum Stan dardrepertoire der Lehre an deutschen Universitäten und Fachhoch schulen gehören. Es ist jedoch die Oberzeugung des Autors, daß sich dies in den kommenden Jahren mit der wachsenden Bedeutung dieses Gebietes und mit der allgemeinen Etablierung der Biotechnologie an den Hochschulen ändern wird. Ober den Kreis der Studenten und Dozen ten hinaus wendet sich die Einführung aber auch an die vielen Natur wissenschaftler und Techniker der industriellen Praxis, die sich mit immobilisierten Biokatalysatoren befassen und sich dazu ein ent sprechendes Grundwissen aneignen wollen.

literature, include all the critical basic material, and The first edition of this treatise, entitled Comprehensive Insect Physiology, Biochemistry, and Pharmacology and edited by Gerald A. Kerkut (see p. ix for the Dedication to Prof. Kerkut ) and Lawrence I. Gilbert, was published in 1985. The preliminary meetings regarding that 13-volume series began in 1980 and it was agreed that there would be 12 volumes ‘‘that would provide an up-to-date summary and orientation on the physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, behavior, and control of insects that would be of value to research workers, teachers, and students.’’ It was felt that the volumes would provide a classical background to the then emphasize the literature from 1950 to the present day (1984). By mid-1981 most of the chapters were assigned to authors and the project was underway. It was agreed upon that there would be a final Volume 13, an Index volume, that combined the subject, species, and author indexes for all 12 volumes so that all material in those volumes could be located easily. This was a monumental undertaking and the 13 volumes finally appeared in 1985. It received plaudits from reviewers and from researchers around the world. One of us (LG.) was approached by Carrol Williams, an internationally renowned insect physiologist, at an International Congress of Entomology following the publication of the first edition, and Professor Williams noted that he had a choice between purchasing the 13-volume set for his laboratory and buying a new centrifuge. He then stated that he chose the 13-volume series and had never regretted it for a moment. There were more than 50 000 references to the literature in the first edition and more than 10 000 species of insects were referred to, and all of this information was readily available through the thirteenth volume (index). It is of interest that volumes of that original series are still being purchased some 19 years after this series was published. Over the past 5–6 years, one of us (LG.) was approached many times by colleagues around the world asking when a second edition of this series would be available. There was an obvious need because of the dramatic explosion of knowledge in insect science due to the utilization of molecular biological paradigms and techniques culminating in the elucidation of the Drosophila genome (fly database), the Anopholes genome, and of course this explosion continues. The use of this technology was really only beginning when the first series was developed and in 2000, 15 years after the publication of the first edition, we and Elsevier agreed that a new edition was necessary. This would be a series in which each chapter would begin by devoting a few pages summarizing the work in a particular research area up to the publication of the first series (1984–1985), and the remainder of the chapter would be a review of the literature from 1985 to 2003. It was agreed upon that each chapter would make full use of data arising from the utilization of molecular technologies if such data were applicable to that particular chapter subject. We chose to fulfill that premise in six volumes plus an index volume and that both a printed version and an electronic version would be available. As is evident, the title of the series has been changed, both to reflect the emphasis on molecular approaches and to alleviate the use of the obviously cumbersome title Comprehensive Insect Physiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, and Molecular Biology, which would have to be typed every time a researcher refers to a chapter in the series.We do not pretend, however, that this is a truly comprehensive treatise, since critical areas of research, e.g., ecology, evolutionary biology, and behavior, have not been included, but we have chosen to retain the use of the word ‘‘Comprehensive’’ for continuity with the first series. The reader will note that the number of chapters in the six volumes is certainly well below the number of chapters in the original 12 volumes. The editors made very subjective decisions based on their own experience and knowledge regarding those areas where the most progress had been made over the past 18 years and omitted areas that have not grown significantly. Surely, there are areas of omission that many readers will feel were due to arbitrary decisions or lack of knowledge of the editors. That is bound to be the case although we spent a great deal of time deciding which chapters should be included, but there is little doubt that personal research bias played a role in those decisions. We are certainly confident that these volumes will be of great value to the research community, including postdoctoral investigators and graduate students. The new publishing technology will allow upgrades by the publisher every several years for those areas of research in which significant breakthroughs occur. This, of course, will only occur in the electronic format of the series and it is hoped that at least for the first few upgrades the original authors will take part. Lawrence I.

One of the first textbooks in this emerging important field of ecology. Most of ecology is about metabolism: the ways that organisms use energy and materials. The energy requirements of individuals – their metabolic rates – vary predictably with their body size and temperature. Ecological interactions are exchanges of energy and materials between organisms and their environments. So metabolic rate affects ecological processes at all levels: individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems. Each chapter focuses on a different process, level of organization, or kind of organism. It lays a conceptual foundation and presents empirical examples. Together, the chapters provide an integrated framework that holds the promise for a unified theory of ecology. The book is intended to be accessible to upper-level undergraduate, and graduate students, but also of interest to senior scientists. Its easy-to-read chapters and clear illustrations can be used in lecture and seminar courses. Together they make for an authoritative treatment that will inspire future generations to study metabolic ecology.
