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.

"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. Toxicologists will find interest in the control measures utilizing insecticides, and researchers studying emerging diseases will be alerted to the potential for trypanosomosis. A scholarly review in a price-worthy package."--Veterinary and Human Toxicology
"Tsetse Biology and Ecology is comprehensive, covering all aspects of tsetse fly biology and trypanosomiasis. Its chief strength is that it reviews ecology and try
