Millipedes are common components of the leaf-litter fauna of most terrestrial environments. The Biology of Millipedes is the first single-volume review of this important group and covers their ecology, behaviour, physiology, and evolution. This book is essential reading for terrestrial ecologists, zoologists, and students taking courses in invertebrate biology.Introductory chapters consider millipede taxonomy and phylogeny, basic anatomy, locomotion, and ecomorphology. Later chapters review feeding and digestion, metabolism, nerves, and neurosecretion, together with all aspects of millipedes in decomposition processes, and their role as pests. The authors provide an extremely comprehensive bibliography of research papers and literature.Hopkin, Stephen P. is the author of 'Biology of Millipedes' with ISBN 9780198576990 and ISBN 0198576994.
