This work from 1995 has been reformatted, updated and developed by expert new authors into an encyclopedic format to provide more information in an accessible way. Under the direction of Professors Richard Russell and Richard Wall the encyclopedia will examine the biology, classification and control of arthropods which cause diseases in humans and other animals. Species of fleas, flies, lice, mites, midges, mosquitoes and ticks will be covered, with a thorough examination of their morphology, taxonomy and phylogeny. The diseases these pests cause will also be described, such as Rickettsial Diseases, Plague, Babesiosis and Leishmaniasis. This new treatment of the subject will provide readers with a new organisation of content, up-to-date research and findings about the insects and the diseases they transmit, the latest information on insect distribution and disease spread, presented in an A-Z encyclopedic format with line drawings and colour images. An extensive index will aid navigation, providing a broad coverage of an expansive subject, ideal for using as a guide in the field or as a research tool for students, researchers and medical and veterinary professionals.
