  • Provides a picture of the current state of knowledge of sensory systems in nature
  • Presents an intersection of evolutionary biology, cell and molecular biology, physiology and genetics
  • Written by a distinguished panel of specialists and is intended to be read by biologists, students, scientific investigators and the medical community
Biological systems are an emerging discipline that may provide integrative tools by assembling the hierarchy of interactions among genes, proteins and molecular networks involved in sensory systems. The aim of this volume is to provide a picture, as complete as possible, of the current state of knowledge of sensory systems in nature. The presentation in this book lies at the intersection of evolutionary biology, cell and molecular biology, physiology and genetics. Sensing in Nature is written by a distinguished panel of specialists and is intended to be read by biologists, students, scientific investigators and the medical community.
