Glossary and list of symbols. 1. Introduction: rhythms and clocks. 2. Circadian rhythms of activity in individual insects. 3. Circadian rhythms of activity in populations of insects. 4. Circadian rhythms: genes and the feedback loop. 5. Physiology of circadian systems (C.G.H. Steel, X. Vafopoulou). 6. The multioscillator circadian system. 7. Quantitative models for insect clocks (R.D. Lewis). 8. Circadian rhythms: photoreceptor and clock location. 9. Photoperiodism and seasonal cycles of development. 10. The photoperiodic response. 11. Circadian rhythms in photoperiodism. 12. The photoperiodic counter. 13. Photoperiodic time measurement: the clock-counter mechanism. 14. Photoperiodic photoreceptors and clock location. 15. Other types of insect clocks. 16. Clock complexity: the way forward? References. Index.

Reviews

@from:J. Hardie @qu:...It is a very readable, erudite volume that will appeal to undergraduate scholars, postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers. It should find its way onto the bookshelves in offices and laboratories as well as libraries. Indeed, it is essential reading for anyone interested in the area and purchasers will not be disappointed. @source:Physiological Entomology
