`This book (...)is designed for easy access and is copiously illustrated by Dr. Walker's own excellent line drawings of the various genera... A book such as this, which succeeds in making arthropod taxonomy user-friendly, will certainly find its place on the shelves and benches of parasitologists everywhere.' P Veterinary Parasitology
`It appears that this is a book without flaws and I must admit that my enthusiasm for the concept of Alan's work may have blinded me to them. Having seen so many otherwise outstanding workers demonstrate a massive mental block when faced with arthropod identification I can only hope that this field guide will give them and their successors the courage to tackle this essential aspect of field work.'
Tropical Animal Health and Production
`This is a useful book for anyone who needs to identify arthropods to genus level but who may have limited experience in entomology. It would be a very useful bench book for any veterinary diagnostic laboratory ... The layout is practical and, with basic knowledge, easy to follow ... This is a good book that fulfils the criteria that it sets out to achieve and which would be an excellent supplement to textbooks on veterinary and medical entomology.'
The Veterinary Record
`...Alan Walker is to be congratulated both on the breadth of coverage...and on the quality of the illustrations.'
Bulletin of Entomological Research
