"Designed to be comprehensive, the 597-page book covers 22 groups of insects and arachnids that can adversely affect the heath of humans and animals." -VETERINARY PRACTICE NEWS (JUNE 2004) "Highly recommended as a reference volume for public, college and university libraries or anyone seeking a detailed and thorough treatment of the subject. General readers; lower division undergraduates through professionals." âR.E. Lee Jr., Miami University for CHOICE (February 2003) "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." -VETERINARY PARASITOLOGY (May 2003) "...is without a doubt the finest book available in English on the subject today." -FLORIDA SCIENTIST (2003) "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." âFrank E. French, Georgia Southern University (June 2002) "... the text was excellent. Unlike many other edited texts, this one adhered to a similar ground plan for all chapters and thus presented an even flow from one chapter to the next. The editors asked the best people in each of the specific areas to write chapters, and this choice of authorship was reflected in the quality of the contributions." âMarc J. Klowden, University of Idaho, College of Agriculture (February 2002) "Let me start by saying this is an excellent book, probably the best text to comprehensively cover both medical and veterinary entomology." âMike Service for ANNALS OF TROPICAL MEDICINE AND PARASITOLOGY (2002)
