9780080268507: Comprehensive Insect Physiology, Biochemistry & Pharmacology : 13-Volume Set

The importance, development and achievements in modern insect science have stimulated the editors and the publisher to commission this comprehensive work. The rapid rate of progress in the subject demands that any such work should be published in a set of volumes simultaneously, rather than in parts over a period of several years. This objective has been achieved by inviting as contributors many active scientists drawn from the international body of practising insect physiologists, biochemists and pharmacologists and by using the most up-to-date computerised typesetting techniques. These volumes will become an essential source of reference for many years to come for scientists in university departments, agricultural and medical institutes and research laboratories in the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries. Each article may also be read independently, as a review of the particular subject, and will therefore be especially valuable to

Review:

1986 The 240 authors of the separate chapters have done an excellent job and provided readable accounts that give the background to the subjects, the present views and in many cases suggestions what should be done next....The volumes are well written, well illustrated and have extensive tabular data....Though the volumes seem expensive they should be considered in terms of a piece of information equipment less than the price of a refrigerated centifruge, a HPLC system, a research microscope or a storage oscilloscope....it will be very useful to have this series of volumes in the laboratory where they can be constantly consulted. They will also be essential to those Departments who do not have an extensive range of journals in their library. -- International Journal of Biochemistry, vol. 18, no. 1

1986 The series as a whole is meant as an authoritative reference work and deserves to be called so. Each separate volume can also be considered as a valuable reference for the particular field concerned...The work will become a landmark for the students and may be the point from which new literature files will be started....The layout of the books, printed in 2 columns is pleasant and the quality of the paper is such that an excellent reproduction of figures, including photo-micrographs was possible. The work is a worthy successor to Rockstein's Physiology of Insecta and a valuable tool for the experimental entomologist. -- Entomologische Berichten, Deel 46

22 August 1989 An essential source of reference for scientists in university departments, agricultural and medical and research laboratories in the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries... Espcially valuable to researchers as a comprehensive introduction to the literature. -- Pergamon Press NY

July 1989 These volumes ae an essential source of reference for scientists in university departments, agricultural and medical institutes and research laboratories in the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries. Each article may also be read independently, as a review of the particular subject, and will therefore be especially valuable to researchers embarking on a project in a new field, as a comprehensive introduction to the literature... In my opinion the "Comprehensive Insect Physiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology" is a magnificent piece of scientific work, that deserves a central place in every entomological library. -- Entomolgia Generalis Vol 14 No's 3/4
