"Physiological Systems of Insects" is designed to emphasize classical material such as the structure and function of insect organ systems. In addition, the book supplements classical material with insights into insect biology achieved through studies of insect molecular biology, neuroendocrinology, biochemistry, and genetics. Throughout the book there is an effort to lay the experimental foundation upon which studies of insect physiology are based. Students, faculty, and researchers who need a summary of the patterns and processes regulated by physiological systems will want this book. It gives comprehensive descriptions of physiological systems. Clear figures are adapted from scientific reports. It provides a glossary of physiological terms and contains complete references to past and present research.

"In prose that is both lucid and informed, Klowden provides a remarkably holistic yet detailed view of the most successful organisms on the planet. The author examines the 'hows' of insect systems and, equally importantly, offers answers to provocative evolutionary 'why' questions. ...Those seeking an integrated treatment of insect physiology will be richly rewarded with this author as a guide." -Carol Sheppard, Dept of Entomology, Washington State University (December 2001) "This is an excellent text. It is concise in organization and there is uniformity of presentation of figures that is pleasing. It is very readable and contains some new information not available elsewhere. The viewpoint of the author is refreshing." -INSECT PHYSIOLOGY ONLINE (December 2001)About the Author:
