About this book

Arthropods act as hosts to and transmit some of the most troublesome and, in many cases, lethal diseases that afflict humans and animals. As such, and because they represent four fifths of all named species of animals, they are of considerable importance to human and veterinary medicine, both in warmer climates and in temperate zones, due to the substantial increase in inter-continental travel. This atlas illustrates the major disease and parasite bearing arthropods from all the continents, accompanying each with pictures showing the medical problems they cause, and thus should be of great practical value. It illustrates the clinical consequences of each disease, with physical signs, radiographs and pathology. Following a brief introduction on the general zoology and classification of arthropods, the subject matter is dealt with in four main parts. The first illustrates the important arthropods that transmit diseases. The next two sections deal with arthropods that are important in their own right as ectoparasites or endoparasites (scabies, for example, may affect over 300 million people worldwide). The final section illustrates many of the arthropods that are directly venomous to humans, such as scorpions and spiders.
