Riassunto: Endocrinology II concerns the actions of hormones in insects, complementing Volume 7 which is concerned with the production and chemistry of insect hormones. While the preceding volume is directed mainly towards the insect endocrinologist, this volume has much of intrinsic interest to the general physiologist. It deals with the regulation of metabolism, reproduction, cuticle properties, and certain aspects of behaviour from a systems point of view and amply documents how hormones have provided basic insights into the functioning of such systems. Interference in endocrine regulation could provide future systems for insect control and this volume will provide the foundation on which the future formulation of these strategies is based. More information on diverse aspects of insect hormone action is brought together here than in any previous single work and this volume will therefore be a valuable reference source for many years to come.
1986 The 240 authors of the separate chapters have done an excellent job and provided readable accounts that give the background to the subjects, the present views and in many cases suggestions what should be done next....The volumes are well written, well illustrated and have extensive tabular data....Though the volumes seem expensive they should be considered in terms of a piece of information equipment less than the price of a refrigerated centifruge, a HPLC system, a research microscope or a storage oscilloscope....it will be very useful to have this series of volumes in the laboratory where they can be constantly consulted. They will also be essential to those Departments who do not have an extensive range of journals in their library. -- International Journal of Biochemistry, vol. 18, no. 1
April 1986 Although written for the laboratory worker, the field worker will find much of background relevance to his studies which will save him lengthy searches to the literature. -- European Journal of Forest Pathology
July 1989 These volumes ae an essential source of reference for scientists in university departments, agricultural and medical institutes and research laboratories in the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries. Each article may also be read independently, as a review of the particular subject, and will therefore be especially valuable to researchers embarking on a project in a new field, as a comprehensive introduction to the literature... In my opinion the "Comprehensive Insect Physiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology" is a magnificent piece of scientific work, that deserves a central place in every entomological library. -- Entomolgia Generalis Vol 14 No's 3/4
