This is the definitive reference work on the biology of terrestrial slugs. It covers their anatomy, physiology, ecology, behaviour, life cycles, slugs as transmitters of disease, slug crop damage and the control of slug pests. It contains an extensive bibliography.
This reference on the biology of slugs covers anatomy, physiology, ecology, behavior, and life cycles, and discusses slugs as transmitters of disease and as experimental animals in the field of neurophysiology. Since they have become increasingly important as agricultural and horticultural pests, the book also covers slug crop damage and the control of slug pests. The methodology and physiology described includes worldwide coverage, since all temperate areas are affected by the same pest species. Extensive references. Acidic paper. Annotation c.
