Morphogenesis, Molting and Metamorphosis
Lawrence I. Gilbert, editor
2009, 730 pages, color & b/w photos, illustrations, tables, diagrams, graphs. Publication of the extensive 7-volume work Comprehensive Molecular Insect Science has provided library customers and their end-users with a complete reference encompassing important developments and achievements in modern insect science including reviews on the ecdysone receptor, lipocalins, and bacterial toxins. This derivative from the major reference work presents a new opportunity for those who wish to purchase a comprehensive yet affordable work on these important aspects of insect development.
Timeless articles by a host of respected contributors in the field cover 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.
