About 95 per cent of all known animal species are invertebrates. A knowledge of their sexual, reproductive, and developmental biology is essential for the effective management of species that are economically useful to man or are harmful to him, his crops and livestock. This treatise is the first to cover all aspects of reproduction and development of the entire spectrum of invertebrates?terrestrial, marine, fresh–water, brackish–water, free–living, and parasitic. The chapters, by leading world experts in their fields, are up–to–date and informative, and suggest a number of problems for future research. Progress in Developmental Endocrinology (issued in parts A and B) is the tenth Volume in the series. Volume X, Part A Progress in Developmental Endocrinology Edited by August Dorn Contents Preface to the Progress Series; Preface to Volume X A; Contributors; Endocrine Systems of Protostomia and Non–Vertebrate Deuterostomia?An overview D.

About the Editors Dr.K.G. Adiyodi, formerly Professor of Reproductive Physiology and Dean, Faculty of Science, Calicut University, Kerala, India and Vice–Chancellor, Cochin University of Science and Technology, Kochi, is now Public Service Commissioner to Government of India, New Delhi. A distinguished invertebrate reproductive biologist, who gave the discipline of invertebrate reproductive biology a global distinctiveness and identity of its own, Dr.K.G. Adiyodi is Founder Secretary of the International Society of Invertebrate Reproduction, Founder Editor–in–Chief of the International Journal of Invertebrate Reproduction and Development, and Founder President of the Indian Society of Invertebrate Reproduction. Dr. Rita G. Adiyodi, formerly Rhodes Visiting Fellow, Somerville College, Oxford (1976–78), is Professor of Zoology at Calicut University. She served as President of the Crustacean Reprobiology and Aquaculture Bureau of India and as Vice–President of the Indian Society of Invertebrate Reproduction. Dr Rita Adiyodi represented India on the International Committee of Comparative Endocrinology. The Adiyodis have worked extensively, over the past three decades, on the endocrinology and physiology of growth and reproduction of arthropods, chiefly crustaceans. Dr. August Dorn is Professor of Zoology at the Institute of Zoology, Johannes Gutenberg–University (JOGU) in Mainz, Germany. After his doctoral degree from the JOGU, he carried out a research project at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York: Neuroendocrine Processes in Insect Embryos. Since 1972 he is professor at the JOGU and teaches General and Applied Entomology. His chief research interests are Endocrine Regulation of Insect Reproduction, Role of Hormones in Locust Phase Polymorphism and Mode of Action of Natural Insect Growth Regulators. In 1981/82 he was Visiting Professor at the Department of Biology at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill (USA) sponsored by the VW–Stiftung. He has published numerous articles in the above–mentioned fields.
