Physiological Entomology publishes original high-quality research in the broad area of insect physiology. The editors believe behaviour and physiology are different approaches to a single subject that ranges from molecular to whole organism studies. Thus the journal serves the interests of experimentalists who work on the behaviour of insects and other arthropods, but retains the Royal Entomological Society’s traditional interest in the general physiology of arthropods. This Virtual Issue provides a selection of top downloaded articles during 2011 which have previously been published in Physiological Entomology between 2003 and 2011.
