Because of their diversity, existing studies in the gerontology of insects are widely scat­ tered in various specialized journals. What do insect studies tell us about human lifespan, aging and death? “Lots,” says UC Davis entomologist James R. Carey, director of a federally funded program on aging and lifespan that has just received a $ million grant renewal from the National Institute on Aging. The Handbook of Models for Human Aging is designed as the only comprehensive work available that covers the diversity of aging models currently available. For each animal model, it presents key aspects of biology, nutrition, factors affecting life span, methods of age determination, use in research, and disadvantages/advantes of use. The booklouse, also known as a paperlouse, is a soft-bodied, wingless insect in the order Psocoptera (usually Trogium pulsatorium), typically 1 mm or less in ce feed on microscopic molds and other organic matter found in or on aging items that have been stored in places that lack the climate control necessary to inhibit organic growth..
