Insect Integument and Colour

Advances in Insect Physiology publishes eclectic and thematic volumes containing important, comprehensive and in-depth reviews of all aspects of insect physiology. It is an essential reference source for invertebrate physiologists and neurobiologists, entomologists, zoologists and insect biochemists. First published in 1963, the serial is now edited by Steve Simpson and Jerome Casas to provide an international perspective. This thematic volume on insect integument and colour contributes to the revival of insect integrative biology.
