Cambridge University Press; 5th edition
Since the first edition of The Insects: Structure and Function was published well over four decades ago, it has been widely regarded as the authoritative textbook on the subject. This long-awaited, The Insects 5th edition (PDF) has been expanded and revised by a team of eminent insect physiologists, bringing it fully up-to-date for the latest molecular era. Building on the strengths of Chapman's original textbook, this long-awaited edition has been available for quite some time. The chapters keep the effective structure of the prior versions, which focused on certain functional systems rather than taxonomic categories. This makes it simple for biology students to delve into issues without having to have comprehensive understanding of taxonomy. The fundamentals of anatomy and physiology are brought together, and the relationship between behavior and these topics is investigated. The emphasis is placed on function and form. This, together with approximately 600 pictures that are very clear, provides a full grasp of exactly how the body systems of insects function. The Insects, Fifth Edition PDF is an essential textbook for researchers, students, and practical entomologists alike. It now also features a highly illustrated prologue that was created by George McGavin.
