The Physiology of Insecta, Second Edition, Volume IV, is part of a multivolume treatise that brings together the known facts, the controversial material, and the many still unsolved and unsettled problems of insect physiology. Since the first edition of this multivolume treatise was published, there has been a notable expansion of scientific endeavor in each of the various aspects of insect physiology. The original three-volume work has now grown to a thoroughly revised six-volume treatise. The book contains six chapters and opens with a discussion of the insect central nervous system. This is followed by separate chapters on axonal and synaptic pharmacology; the neural control of skeletal muscle; the structural proteins in insect muscle and their physico-chemical properties; biological oxidation and energetics in insects; and protein synthesis in insects.
