Description of Principles of Insect Morphology First Edition (PDF)

Principles of Insect Morphology First Edition by R. E. Snodgrass is a great book for Entomology studies available in (eBook) PDF download. Morphology, in the biological sense, is the science of form in living organisms. Anatomy is the determination of structural facts. Morphology seeks to find the reason for structure, and to understand the relation of different structural forms to one another. Morphology, therefore, must be intimate with function, since it must see forms as plastic physical adaptations to the work to be performed. A few physiological functions are basic to all organisms; they are essential to the continuance of matter in a living state.

The various structural types of organisms are special ways of accomplishing these functions, that is, for doing the same things in different ways or under different circumstances. Some represent improvements in the machinery along established lines; others represent changes or new ideas developed along new and divergent lines. The morphologist, therefore, though primarily a comparative anatomist, in order properly to develop his subject, must give attention to the working of the physical mechanisms with which he deals in his anatomical studies, he must look for the significance of structural modifications and innovations, and he must understand the basic physiological functions that underlie organic form.
