'... a high standard of comprehensiveness and accuracy ... will surely prove to be a really useful book.' Nature
'The book is superbly illustrated with line drawings, graphs, and occasional halftone photographs ... The text itself is written very clearly and one can recommend this to either undergraduate or graduate students without any hesitation whatsoever. The abundant literature citations and excellent index add to the value of the textual discussions, making this book an invaluable resource for any biologist working with insects and aspects of their chemical ecology and physiology.' Thomas C. Emmel, Journal of Chemical Ecology
'This book should be on the shelf of every entomologist and student of insects. It is a splendid and much needed revision that brings insect structure and function up to date in the most accessible fashion.' Quarterly Review of Biology
The Insects is about how insects function as animals; it brings together basic anatomy and physiology and relates this to behavior. It emphasizes the roles of different functional systems in the context of the whole organism, using studies of many different species as illustrations. Unlike other texts, it does not dwell on classification, but takes an in-depth look at physiology. As such it will provide all biologists with a basic understanding of how insects work. A long-awaited update of a well-established standard text and respected reference work for students and researchers in zoology, entomology and physiology, it has been rewritten throughout, whilst retaining the successful structure of the earlier editions. Improved illustrations have been augmented with electron micrographs, and expanded reference sections will make it a valuable addition to all biologists' bookshelves.
