Reviews

From the reviews:

`This is an excellent introduction to biological attachment and will be of interest to biologist, especially entomologist, materials scientist and engineers.'
Entomofauna Zeitschrift Fur Entomologie, 23, 2:13-28

"This recently published `big review' in book form is a logical step. ... The result is a concise book which is well written and based on the personal experiences of the author. Simplicity is a big advantage as there are too many examples ... . It is of interest not only for biologists (including molecular biologists), zoologists, entomologists and ecologists, but also for specialists from material science and engineers. ... I recommend this book to all students and scientists ... ." (F. Weyda, European Journal of Entomology, Vol. 102, 2005)
