R. F. Chapman, Stephen J. Simpson, Angela E. Douglas
Cambridge University Press; 5th edition
The insects: structure and function has been the standard textbook in the field since the first edition published over forty years ago. Building on the strengths of Chapman’s original textbook; 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. The chapters retain the successful structure of the earlier editions; focusing on particular functional systems rather than taxonomic groups and making it easy for biology students to delve into topics without extensive knowledge of taxonomy. The focus is on function and form; bringing together basic anatomy and physiology and examining how these relate to behaviour. This; combined with nearly 600 very clear illustrations; provides a comprehensive understanding of just how insects work. Now also featuring a richly illustrated prologue by George McGavin; The Insects 5e PDF is an essential textbook for researchers; students and applied entomologists alike.
