The important developments and achievements in modern insect science since the first edition of Comprehensive Molecular Insect Science have led to this new revised, expanded and retitled reference work. New chapters in this edition include the ecdysone receptor, lipocalins, bacterial toxins and more. Each article may also be read independently, as a review of that particular subject.

Comprehensive Molecular Insect Science also covers new technologies that have been developed since 1985. The Index Volume will help researchers to track specific subjects and particular species of insects cited in several volumes.
