Mosquitoes are of significant interest both as transmitters of major diseases and as nuisance insects, and as such are one of the most intensively studied and well-known groups of insects.
Following the widely acclaimed first two volumes of The Biology of Mosquitoes, this authoritative review covers viral, arboviral and bacterial pathogens of mosquitoes, with a further volume on malarial, fliarial and other parasites to follow. This volume provides detailed coverege of the significant factors involved with adult mosquito survival and the epidemiology of mosquito-borne diseases.
Covering host-parasite interactions, mosquito immune responses and characteristics and transmission of viruses, prokaryotes and eukaryotes ranging from protozoans to nematodes, this essential reference is a must-read for entomologists, particularly those involved with mosquitoes as disease vectors or pests both in the laboratory and the field.
