For medical, veterinary, entomology and public health students, this acclaimed textbook has been fully updated and revised to reflect the most recent advances. Each chapter is structured with the student in mind, organized by the major headings of Taxonomy, Morphology, Life History, Behavior and Ecology, Public Health and Veterinary Importance, and Prevention and Control. This 2e includes separate chapters devoted to each of the taxonomic groups of insects and arachnids of medical or veterinary concern, including spiders, scorpions, mites, and ticks. Internationally recognized editors Mullen and Durden surpass the competition by including extensive coverage of both medical and veterinary entomological importance.
