      This volume deals mainly with the biology of the American cockroach, Periplaneta americana (1.). Contributors were urged to emphasize recent findings, including unpublished data when possible, a goal that would not have been feasible if it were not for the two previously published books on the basic biology of cockroaches, The Biology o/the Cockroach () by D. M. Guthrie and A. R. . Biology Digestive tract. Cockroaches are generally omnivorous; the American cockroach (Periplaneta americana), for example, feeds on a great variety of foodstuffs including bread, fruit, leather, starch in book bindings, paper, glue, skin flakes, hair, dead insects and soiled clothing.

    American Cockroaches are scavengers and will eat almost anything, with a preference for decaying organic matter, sweets, and starchy items such as book bindings and the back of wall paper. Life Cycle. American Cockroaches multiply rapidly, with the mature female producing many egg capsules containing 14 to 16 eggs each.

    For comparison we tried to use the same cockroach species, but unfortunately the sequence data for the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene of B. germanica was not available; instead we used B. vaga which is biologically very closely related with the latter (Stay B., personal communication).Cited by: By the time Marianne C. Dominguez of the University of California at Davis finished researching her award-winning paper on the history and biology of the cockroach, she'd become an unapologetic admirer of this much-reviled insect. The lowly roach was “an amazing creature worthy of respect in the tree of life,” she.

Beginning with a foreword by Edward O. Wilson, the book explores the fascinating natural history and behavior of cockroaches, describing their various colors, sizes, and shapes, as well as how they move on land, in water, and through the air.

In addition to habitat use, diet, reproduction, and behavior, Cockroaches covers aspects of cockroach biology, such as the relationship between cockroaches Cited by: The book features an informative introduction to the biology and behavior of cockroaches, from breeding and life cycles to camouflage and mimicry, but the bulk of the text focuses on species profiles of the most common roaches in the hobby.5/5(4).

The cockroaches mostly referred to by the author of this book are Periplaneta americana (L.), Blatía orientalis L. and Blattella germánica (L.), which are the common species in Britain, but others are included, and information on various aspects of their morphology, biology and life-cycles, some of it based on original observations, is assembled in 16 by: This quote from an book on The Structure and Life History of the Cockroach is part of The Compleat Cockroach, David George Gordon's look at the biology, behavior, sociology and culture (Kafka, Don Marquis, Donald Harrington, Daniel Evan Weiss) of by: 1.

The adults of the common species of cockroach, Periplaneta americana are about mm long with wings that extend beyond the tip of the abdomen in males. The body of the cockroach is segmented and divisible into three distinct regions - head, thorax and abdomen.

The entire body is covered by a hard chitinous exoskeleton (brown in colour). This book is much needed to educate biologists about the fascinating biology and diversity of cockroaches.

This tissue has a free surface, which faces either a body fluid or the outside.
