Aedes Aegypti, the yellow fever mosquito, is widely used as a laboratory type for research on the bionomics, structure and physiology of the mosquito and for many other research purposes, such as in the testing of insecticides, research on essential food requirements and genetical studies.
The book brings together in a systematic way all that is known about this species. It presents, in a readily usable form, information scattered in a vast and diffuse literature and adds much from the author's own work. The scope of the book covers the history of early research, a review of the species systematics, its distribution, natural enemies and parasites, its relation to disease and the measures taken in its control.
First published in 1960.
