First book to provide a comprehensive analysis for both the student and specialist in the emerging field of immunoentomology.
"This collection of review articles on the interactions of host-ectoparasite arthropods is well presented in 13 chapters. The articles are well written and of interest to students and scientists concerned with interactions between parasitic arthropods and their hosts. The articles emphasize host defenses and ectoparasitic arthropod escape mechanisms against them. The authors have dealt extensively with the subject matter and provided both a thorough background and current findings, rather than highlighting solely their own research. . . . This book will serve as a great reference to those interested in the complex issues of host-parasitic arthropod interactions. The species discussed are ecologically and economically important. The contributors have written excellent and comprehensive articles that will spur interest on further research in this area."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
