Description

Medical and Veterinary Entomology, Third Edition, targets upper-level undergraduate and graduate/postgraduate students who are taking courses in Medical Entomology, Veterinary Entomology, Medical and Veterinary Entomology, Public Health Entomology, Wildlife Entomology, Vector-Borne Diseases and Emerging Diseases. These courses are taught in various (mainly University) departments, including those that specialize in Biology, Zoology, Entomology, Parasitology and Public Health. Students in Colleges of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine will also benefit from this valuable resource, as will practicing physicians, veterinarians, general entomologists, parasitologists, epidemiologists, and wildlife biologists.

Key Features

  • Captures the recent and important new developments for many arthropod groups and the pathogens/parasites they transmit
  • Covers recent advances in molecular techniques
  • Includes figures (approximately one-third new to the edition) that are available for download by instructors for teaching purposes

Readership

Upper-level undergraduate and graduate/postgraduate students are the primary audience for this textbook in association with accompanying courses in Medical Entomology, Veterinary Entomology, Medical and Veterinary Entomology, Public Health Entomology, Wildlife Entomology, Vector-Borne Diseases and Emerging Diseases. These courses are taught in various (mainly University) departments including those that specialize in Biology, Zoology, Entomology, Parasitology and Public Health. Students in Colleges of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine are another target audience as are practicing physicians, veterinarians, general entomologists, parasitologists, epidemiologists, and wildlife biologists
