In the second edition of this popular student textbook, Professor Mike Service presents basic information on the recognition, biology and medical importance of arthropod vectors of disease and their control. All of the major groups of medically important arthropods are covered and all chapters have been thoroughly updated to take into account recent changes in control methodologies and the latest information on vector biology. Each chapter has its own further reading list and a useful glossary of terms has been added. A clear, concise writing style combined with numerous, accurate line illustrations makes this book easily accessible to undergraduate and graduate students of medical entomology, parasitology, tropical medicine and pest management, for whom it should be essential reading. The book is also intended as a source of information for physicians, nurses, health officials and community health workers.
