Insect Anatomy: Structure and Function is the first book to provide both morphological and anatomical descriptions of insect tissues and organs using the most updated methods. Insects play important roles in diverse ecosystems, with subsequent, tremendous impacts on human society through disease, agriculture effects, and more. Both beneficial and detrimental insect species continuously challenge agriculture and medicine. To face these challenges, researchers must understand insect biology in detail at genetic and cellular levels within their tissues and organs.Written by international experts of insect morphology and anatomy, this book offers concise descriptions of all part of an insect’s anatomy, including the brain and nervous system, tracheal system, blood, reproductive organs, and kidney system. The book also covers external insect parts such as antennae, wings, and different forms of insect epidermis. Insect tissues and organs are analyzed as they relate to gene and protein function in distinct types of cells, tissues, and organs.Insect Anatomy: Structure and Function is an indispensable resource for entomologists focusing on insect biology and physiology, as well as students in entomology or zoology courses, professionals in agricultural pest management, or disease control in medicine.
