Advances in Insect Physiology, Volume 24
Academic Press, Dec 15, 1993 - Science - 386 pages
Insect Physiology is currently undergoing a revolution with the increased application of molecular biological techniques to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying the physiological responses to insect cells. Advances in Insect Physiology has instituted a commitment to the publication of high quality reviews on molecular biology and molecular genetics in areas where they provide an increased understanding of physiological processes in insects. Volume 24 is the first to include such specifically sought articles.
