Abstract:

Aiming to synthesize knowledge from the studies of the past with the recent exciting discoveries on Drosophila and Manduca development, this volume addresses reproductive systems, gametogenesis, sperm transfer and use, fertilization, sex determination, parthenogenesis, embryogenesis, postembryogenesis and metamorphosis, hormones, the quantitative analysis of growth, and the contributions of ontogeny to insect diversification. For each is provided a summary of structural events, comparative aspects, and results of experimental analysis--the last in chronological order to provide perspective on the evolution of thinking on the subject. Suitable as a text for a one- or two-semester course in insect development. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
