This book is designed primarily as a textbook for graduate and postgraduate courses in Medical, Public Health and Veterinary Entomology. Its uniqueness is that its emphasis is on disease as opposed to arthropods. It includes general discussions of epidemiology, transmission, disease control, vector control and disease surveillance. In addition, it contains chapters oriented towards the many specific arthropod-borne diseases. Furthermore, the book discusses the many direct impacts that parasitic insects have on human and animal health. The arthropods themselves are dealt with in two introductory chapters.

PRINTED IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BY THE VAIL-BALLOU PRESS, INC., BINGHAMTON, N. Y. Preface MORE than seventeen years have passed since the first edition of Med ical Entomology was published. In the original preface the important role played by insects and other arthropods in the transmission, causation, and spread of human and animal diseases was stressed. Today no such em phasis is needed, for the important role of insects in human welfare was fully demonstrated during World War II. Recognition of the effects of insect-borne diseases on the armies and navies of the belligerents has impelled our medical and entomological services and the governments of all nations to conduct extensive investigations on all phases of the problem. The results of many of these investigations, some of which are continuing, have not yet been published. In the present work the writer has attempted, with varying - iiccess, to bring together all data available by the end of 1948. s completely rewritten text is offered to the physician, the entomologist, the public health worker, the student, and the layman in order to give them an authoritative survey of our present knowledge. The writer has not at-empted to usurp the function of the physician, so the reader need not ex pect to find a discussion of treatment he will find, however, a brief account f the best known methods of controlling the insects involved in disease transmission or causation. Here great advances have been made during the ast few years. The reader is warned, however, that all the newer insecticides must be used with care and directions should be followed carefully. The literature on insect-borne diseases is voluminous, widely scattered in many and varied journals, monographs, government publications, and other sources, and difficult to cover adequately. For this reason a list of journals, textbooks, and other - publications that will enable the student to find the latest information is given at the end of the first chapter of the present work. Furthermore, each chapter is provided with a selected bibliography. Many of the references given have long bibliographies these references are starred. The writer gratefully acknowledges his indebtedness to the numerous vi PREFACE authors whose publications he has consulted or quoted. Wherever illusl material is borrowed, full acknowledgment is given if, by accident does not appear, due apology is hereby offered. To the many colle, friends, and students who have given suggestions, furnished material, a other ways co-operated with him, the writer desires to tender his s thanks. He is under special obligation to Mr. Harvey I. Scudder for -the galley proof, and to Mr. C. Y. Chow for checking the manuscn reference to malaria in China.

Despite numerous scientific investigations on vector-borne human infections such as malaria, Lyme disease and typhus these diseases continue to threaten human health. Understanding the role of vectors in disease transmission, and the most appropriate control strategies, is therefore essential. This book provides information on the recognition, biology, ecology and medical importance of the arthropods that affect human health. The fifth edition of this popular textbook is completely updated and incorporates the latest strategies for controlling insects, ticks and mites. Numerous illustrations, with new colour photographs of some of the most important vectors, aid recognition. A glossary of entomological and epidemiological terms is included, along with a list of commonly used insecticides and their trade names. Clearly presented in a concise style, this text is aimed at students of medical entomology, tropical medicine, parasitology and pest control. It is also essential reading for physicians, health officials and community health workers.

The first and second editions of Medical and Veterinary Entomology, edited by Gary R. Mullen and Lance A. Durden, published in 2002 and 2009, respectively, have been highly praised and become widely used as a textbook for classroom instruction. This fully revised third edition continues the focus on the diversity of arthropods affecting human and animal health, with separate chapters devoted to each of the taxonomic groups of insects and arachnids of medical or veterinary concern, including spiders, scorpions, mites, and ticks. Each chapter includes sections on taxonomy, morphology, life history, and behavior and ecology, with separate sections on those species of public-health and veterinary importance. Each concludes with approaches to management of pest species and prevention of arthropod-borne diseases. The third edition provides a comprehensive source for teaching medical and/or veterinary entomology at the college and university level, targeted particularly at upper-level undergraduate and graduate/postgraduate programs. In addition to its value as a student textbook, the volume has appeal to a much broader audience, specialists and non-specialists alike. It provides a key reference for biologists in general, entomologists, zoologists, parasitologists, physicians, public-health personnel, veterinarians, wildlife biologists, vector biologists, military entomologists, the general public and others seeking a readable, authoritative account on this important topic. Completely revised and updated edition Includes a distinguished group of 40 nationally and internationally recognized contributors Sixteen new authors, in addition to 25 continuing contributors from the first and second editions A new chapter on Arthropod Toxins and Venoms Illustrated with 560, mostly color, figures and updated maps depicting the distribution of important arthropod taxa and arthropod-borne diseases A significantly expanded and well-illustrated chapter on Molecular Tools Used in Medical and Veterinary Entomology Coverage of emerging and newly recognized arthropod concerns, including mosquito-borne Zika and Chikungunya viruses; tick-borne Bourbon and Heartland viruses; tick-borne rickettsioses and anaplasmosis; and red meat allergy associated with tick bites A 1700-word Glossary An Appendix of Arthropod-Related Viruses of Medical and Veterinary Importance

Arthropod transmitted infections continue to be a front-line issue in all regions of the world. Understanding the insects that transmit diseases, the mechanisms of infection and the resulting diseases is vital to doctors, veterinarians, public health workers and disease control agencies. This major reference examines the biology, classification and control of arthropods that cause disease in animals and humans. The morphology, taxonomy and phylogeny of fleas, flies, lice, mites, midges, mosquitoes and ticks are described, with descriptions of their medical and veterinary significance, diseases they cause, insect distribution and global disease spread. Updated, developed and reworked from Doug Kettle's seminal Medical and Veterinary Entomology, this major new reference presents vital information in encyclopedia format, with alphabetical entries and an extensive index to make key facts easy to find. This new treatment of the subject provides accessible content and up-to-date research, illustrated by line drawings and color photographs.
