Leech Biology and Behaviour, vol I

£38.99

Product description

Sawyer, a well-known leech specialist, surveys the most recent research on this biologically and medically important group of animals. Useful to neurobiologists, molecular biologists, zoologists, and ecologists, these volumes include coverage of the leech's increasingly important role in neurobiological and neurophysiological studies.

Sawyer wrote this book in 1983, part of a three-volume reference work on leeches, which was the result of twelve years of writing. After finishing his book, he opened Biopharm, the world's first leech farm, in Swansea, South Wales.

This book is in an excellent condition, well preserved by a clear plastic dust jacket. There is some faint discolouration of some pages due to age and some wear on the edges of the spine, it is otherwise extremely good.
