Abstract

So far we have followed a kind of reductionist methodology — considering the separate elements of the functional biology of invertebrates in complete or, at least, partial isolation. However, organisms interact with their abiotic environment and each other as whole, functional units and so in this final chapter we consider how the separate pieces of the metabolic jig-saw fit together.
