Advances in Invertebrate (Neuro)Endocrinology: A Collection of Reviews in the Post-Genomic Era Volume 1 & 2 , 1st Edition
Advances in Invertebrate (Neuro)Endocrinology: A Collection of Reviews in the Post-Genomic Era (2-volume set) provides an informative series of reviews from expert scientists who are at the forefront of their research into the endocrinology of invertebrates. These two volumes are timely and appropriate in this post-genomic era because of the rapid pace of change brought about by genome projects, functional genomics, and genetics (omics technologies). The volume shows the rich history and strong tradition of cutting-edge research using invertebrates that has opened up our broader understanding of comparative endocrinology and the evolution of regulatory pathways and systems. These reviews set the scene and context for this exciting new era of understanding that has come from this post-genomic revolution. Canine and Feline Endocrinology 4th Edition
This book undertakes the daunting task of covering most of the diverse endocrine systems that exist among invertebrates. The papers in this book will advance our knowledge of invertebrate endocrinology but also of endocrinology in general, making the book will be valuable to researchers and students.
Neuroendocrine control of cellular activities first evolved in invertebrates, and the presence of endocrine cells was first reported in a mollusk. Both peptidergic and lipid-derived hormones have been found in invertebrates, and a few hormones are unique to invertebrates. Berta Scharrer, along with her husband, Ernst, were the first to coin the term “neuroendocrinology.” Later, Berta, based on her work on Aplysia (a mollusk) and Nereis (an annelid) in the early 1930s, introduced the term “neurosecretion.” As a result of her subsequent work on arthropods, the concept (neuroendocrinology/neurosecretion) became accepted by the scientific community.
