"Medical and Veterinary Entomology" is a comprehensive text and is primarily intended for graduate students and upper level undergraduates studying the medical and veterinary significance of insects and related arthropods. The book will also appeal to a larger audience, specialists and non-specialists alike, including entomologists, parasitologists, biologists, epidemiologists, physicians, public health personnel, veterinarians, wildlife specialists and others looking for a readable, authoritative book on this topic. The first two chapters provide overviews of medical-veterinary entomology and epidemiology, respectively. These are followed by individual chapters devoted to each group of insects or arachnids of medical-veterinary importance and the health problems they can cause including their role as vectors of pathogens. Each of these chapters provides an overview of the taxonomy, biology and ecology of the group, and is followed by separate sections on their medical and veterinary importance, then by a section on prevention and control and, finally, by a list of references and further reading. It is written by nationally and internationally renowned contributing authors. It contains up to date and new information that is easy to locate, with extensive subheadings and highlighted key words throughout text. It includes extensive coverage of arachnids, including scorpions, solpugids, spiders, mites and ticks. It is designed for teaching several courses including Medical Entomology, Veterinary Entomology or combined Medical-Veterinary Entomology courses.

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." -Frank 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." -Marc 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." -Mike Service for ANNALS OF TROPICAL MEDICINE AND PARASITOLOGY (2002)
