By O. W. Richards F.R.S., R. G. Davies (auth.)

In his preface to early versions of this e-book, the overdue Dr. A. D. Imms acknowledged that he meant it to be an user-friendly account of entomology as a department of basic biology. He had specially in brain the wishes of college scholars of zoology and agriculture, in addition to these proceeding later to focus on entomology, and he instructed that the booklet may also curiosity lecturers of complex biology'in colleges. those basic goals and the stability among the various points of the topic have replaced little during this and in our earlier revision. now we have, notwithstanding, attempted to deliver the current variation brand new at the strains of our revised 10th variation of Imms' normal Textbook of Entomology, released in 1977. The textual content has been completely re-set and 11 illustrations were changed by way of new figures. a similar orders . of bugs are famous as within the final version, however the series during which the Endopterygote teams look has been replaced to mirror extra properly their possible evolutionary relationships. Many small alterations and a few addi­ tions were made within the physiological sections, the bankruptcy at the beginning and phylogeny of bugs has been rewritten, and a brand new bibliography presents a range of recent references for the in­ tending expert. it's been our item to make those changes with out materially expanding the size of the booklet or its point of difficulty.

17 A), a varying degree of fusion occurs in the higher groups (c, n). Also, the members of a pair are often so closely amalgamated that they seem to form a single ganglion. as a single longitudinal cord (Fig. 17 n). The ganglia of the central nervous system are mainly formed of peripheral aggregations of nerve cells enclosing a central mass of nerve fibres (the so-called neuropile). Each lateral nerve has two roots. The fibres of the dorsal root arise from motor cells situated dorsolaterally in a ganglion and the sensory fibres, composing the ventral root, end in terminal arborizations on the ventrolateral aspect of the ganglion.

In some insects the response to light received through the compound eyes is more acute and lasting when the dorsal ocelli are in their normal condition than when painted over with an opaque substance. Evidence of this kind suggests that the ocelli and compound eyes interact in mediating the insect's response to light, but the ocelli seem to be more than simple 'stimulatory organs' and ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY Fig. 22. n, nucleus of retinulae. (After Link) the interaction between eyes and ocelli may sometimes be antagonistic.
