Understanding the insects that transmit diseases and the resulting diseases is of vital importance as these infections continue to be a major international threat to public health. This title offers the latest information on insect distribution and disease spread. It is presented in accessible A-Z encyclopedic format with line drawings and colour images. It is reformatted, updated and developed by new expert authors based on the seminal work Medical and Veterinary Entomology. It examines the biology, classification and control of species of fleas, flies, lice, mites, midges, mosquitoes and ticks, examining the morphology, taxonomy and phylogeny. Diseases covered include Rickettsial Diseases, Plague, Babesiosis and Leishmaniasis. The encyclopedia will be an essential resource as a guide in the field or as a research tool for students, researchers and medical and veterinary professionals.
