The Insects has been the standard textbook in the field since the first edition published over forty years ago. Building on the strengths of Chapman's original text, this long-awaited 5th edition has been revised and expanded by a team of eminent insect physiologists, bringing it fully up-to-date for the molecular era. The chapters retain the successful structure of the earlier editions, focusing on particular functional systems rather than taxonomic groups and making it easy for students to delve into topics without extensive knowledge of taxonomy. The focus is on form and function, bringing together basic anatomy and physiology and examining how these relate to behaviour. This, combined with nearly 600 clear illustrations, provides a comprehensive understanding of how insects work. Now also featuring a richly illustrated prologue by George McGavin, this is an essential text for students, researchers and applied entomologists alike.

'If you want to understand how the natural world works, you need to know about insects - the most successful and important multi-cellular organisms on our planet. The key to that understanding is now in your hands. Extensively revised and updated, this is a quite extraordinary book and effectively summarises everything you need to know about insects. Authoritative yet accessible, The Insects: Structure and Function is the clearest and most comprehensive guide ever written on the workings of insects.' George McGavin, University Museum of Natural History and Oxford University
'This new edition of The Insects: Structure and Function fascinates the reader with details on the morphology, processes and mechanisms which allow insects to burgeon on Earth. The tradition of excellence established by Chapman has been perpetuated. Thoroughly modernized and comprehensive, the revision captures the excitement of recent major advances in understanding.' Peter W. Price, Regents' Professor Emeritus, Northern Arizona University
'… the standard textbook in the field since the first edition … this is an essential text for students, researchers and applied entomologists alike.' Bois et forêts des tropiques
