About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1955, as number 4 in the Cambridge Monographs in Experimental Biology series, this book presents an account of diapause in arthropods. The text finds in the phenomenon of diapause material for an investigation of the fundamental aspects of growth. Additionally, the effect on diapause of events in the external environment are seen as important for gaining an understanding of the life cycle of 'beneficial and injurious species'. Illustrative figures are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in arthropods, diapause and the history of science.
