Insect Physiology and Behaviour

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. Although it has not been possible to cover every aspect of the subject area in this virtual issue, we have selected papers published previously in Physiological Entomology that we hope are illustrative of these ideals.
