Overview

For medical, veterinary, entomology and public health students, this acclaimed textbook has been fully updated and revised to reflect the most recent advances. Each chapter is structured with the student in mind, organized by the major headings of Taxonomy, Morphology, Life History, Behavior and Ecology, Public Health and Veterinary Importance, and Prevention and Control. This 2e includes separate chapters devoted to each of the taxonomic groups of insects and arachnids of medical or veterinary concern, including spiders, scorpions, mites, and ticks. Internationally recognized editors Mullen and Durden surpass the competition by including extensive coverage of both medical and veterinary entomological importance.

• Follows in the tradition of Herm's Medical and Veterinary Entomology
• The latest information on developments in entomology relating to public health and veterinary importance
• Two separate indexes for enhanced searchability: Taxonomic and Subject

New to this edition:
• Three new chapters
- Morphological Adaptations of Parasitic Arthropods
- Forensic Entomology
- Molecular Tools in Medical and Veterinary Entomology
• Online ancillaries: glossary, chapter images, study questions, and related web links
• 1700 word glossary
• Appendix of Arthropod-Related Viruses of Medical-Veterinary Importance
• Numerous new full-color images, illustrations and maps throughout

Audience: Students of insect vector borne diseases of humans and other animals. Teaching and research faculty in medical and veterinary schools that provide a course in vector borne diseases. Parasitologists, entomologists, government scientists responsible for oversight and monitoring of insect vector borne diseases. Medical and veterinary school libraries and libraries at institutions with strong programs in entomology.

-FLORIDA SCIENTIST (2003)

"... an excellent book, probably the best text to comprehensively cover both medical and veterinary entomology."
-Mike Service for ANNALS OF TROPICAL MEDICINE AND PARASITOLOGY (2002)

Frank E. French
The Editiors and authors have crafted an outstanding,readable volume. ...Both students and professionals will find the wealth of information will serve as sound foundation for many years. ...As a text,this book will have a long uesful life.
Veterinary Parasitology
This volume should command a place in all libraries and on bookshelves of all those who are seriously interested in entomology and eco-parasitology, whether they be clinicians, academics or students.
Florida Scientist
...is without a doubt the finest book available in English on the subject today.
From The Critics
A textbook for entomology courses in both medical and veterinary programs. The organization is taxonomic according to the insect and related arthropod groups involved. Some of the chapters address topics peculiar to one profession or the other, so instructors can tailor the course. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
