From the Back Cover:
Among the six diseases considered by the World Health Organization to have the greatest impact on human health, five are parasitic and all five are vector borne. Despite great advances in knowledge of these diseases, control remains elusive. Large numbers of other parasitic agents threaten human and companion animal health as well. Parasitic agents are generally considered to be protists, worms, and arthropods. These organisms are of great importance to human and animal health. This book provides basic information on the biologies of these kinds of agents, but emphasizes how control programs can be structured in a sociological, political, and economic milieu.
Unique to Parasitology and Vector Biology is an emphasis on the control of parasitic and vector borne diseases that impinge on human welfare. This text is not encyclopedic; key examples are taken from a variety of hosts including mankind, companion animals, food animals, and certain species of wildlife. This book places parasitology in a "real world context" in modern college courses, following the new emphasis in colleges today.
