5th edition. The standard textbook in the field since the first edition published over forty years ago. Building on the strengths of Chapman's original text, this new edition has been revised and expanded by a team of eminent insect physiologists, bringing it fully up-to-date for the molecular era. The chapters retain the successful structure of the earlier editions, focusing on particular functional systems rather than taxonomic groups and making it easy for students to delve into topics without extensive knowledge of taxonomy.

This, combined with nearly 600 clear illustrations, provides a comprehensive understanding of how insects work
