Insect Anatomy: Structure and Function provides both morphological and anatomical descriptions of insect tissues and organs using 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. 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.

Key Features

  • Covers morphological and anatomical bases for gene and protein functions
  • Examines insect tissues and organs using modern imaging methods
  • Delves into the ecological and evolutionary factors of successful, surviving insect species
