Editorial Reviews

Volume 11 (three parts) in the 15-volume phylogenically-arranged reference work covers insects<-->specifically as material for experiments on fundamental problems in biology. Each volume lists the entire contents and includes a complete subject index. While volume 11 matches the format of other volumes in the series (external anatomy, epithlia and integumentary structures, glands and secretions, connective tissue and supportive structures, vascular elements and blood, digestive system and associated organs, respiratory structures and gas exchange, excretory structures and fluid exchange, reproductive components, immune system, nervous system and sensory elements) the sections are written by different authors. Images and diagrams are exceptionally clear, and large enough to be useful. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
