About this book

Trypanosomosis is a parasitic disease transmitted cyclically by the tsetse fly (glossina spp.), and is considered the main constraint to livestock production in some areas. Sleeping sickness is caused in humans by a species of trypanosoma, and is an important and neglected disease posing a threat to millions of people in tsetse-infected areas. This is a comprehensive survey of the literature on tsetse-transmitted trypanosomosis.

Contents

Tsetse biology and ecology; epidemiology; vector control; control of trypanosomosis.

"This single-author test [sic] provides a scientific and economic overview of tsetse biology and ecology, epidemiology and vector control. It is a splendid authoritative text, written concisely and convincingly. . . . Here is a well referenced, up-to-date and practical discussion of a parasitic disease affecting livestock and humans with a major regional effect and potential international impact. The book is an invaluable reference for veterinary and medical entomologists and parasitologists. The epidemiological aspects are relevant for physicians and veterinarians.
