By: Alan R Walker(Author)
240 pages, 144 b/w illustrations
A guide to the identification of insects, mites, ticks, etc which affect the health of people and their domestic animals. It is designed for practical use in the lab and in the field.
"This book ( [...] )is designed for easy access and is copiously illustrated by Dr. Walker's own excellent line drawings of the various genera [...] A book such as this, which succeeds in making arthropod taxonomy user-friendly, will certainly find its place on the shelves and benches of parasitologists everywhere."

"It appears that this is a book without flaws and I must admit that my enthusiasm for the concept of Alan's work may have blinded me to them. Having seen so many otherwise outstanding workers demonstrate a massive mental block when faced with arthropod identification I can only hope that this field guide will give them and their successors the courage to tackle this essential aspect of field work."
- Tropical Animal Health and Production
"This is a useful book for anyone who needs to identify arthropods to genus level but who may have limited experience in entomology. It would be a very useful bench book for any veterinary diagnostic laboratory [...] The layout is practical and, with basic knowledge, easy to follow [...] This is a good book that fulfils the criteria that it sets out to achieve and which would be an excellent supplement to textbooks on veterinary and medical entomology."
- The Veterinary Record
"[...] Alan Walker is to be congratulated both on the breadth of coverage [...] and on the quality of the illustrations."
