A significant number of diseases are carried by insects, ticks, mites and rodents, and these diseases are far more common than is often realised. New diseases are regularly discovered and are becoming increasingly widespread, in part due to increased global travel and possibly even climate change. In this exciting new volume Norman Gratz, former Director, Division of Vector Biology and Control, World Health Organisation, reviews the distribution of all currently identified vector and rodent-borne diseases in Europe, the USA and Canada. Each type of infection is presented by group, covering incidence and prevalence, costs and public health burdens. Basic vector biology and control is described in detail and an extensive bibliography is provided to aid readers seeking further information.
With its comprehensive coverage and detail, this book is set to become the standard reference for anyone working on vector- and rodent-borne diseases in medical entomology, zoology, epidemiology and public health.
