Outstanding Problems

Part of the Zoophysiology and Ecology book series (ZOOPHYSIOLOGY, volume 4/5)


As Locke (1964) has emphasized, the arthropod cuticle provides fine experimental material for specialists in many disciplines. In this book it will be evident that there are still plenty of problems for biophysicists, biochemists, ecologists, endocrinologists, bioengineers, physiologists and developmental biologists. Some of them are highlighted below. This chapter is meant to be exhilarating and provocative rather than informative.
