Despite numerous scientific investigations on vector-borne human infections such as malaria, Lyme disease and typhus these diseases continue to threaten human health. Understanding the role of vectors in disease transmission, and the most appropriate control strategies, is therefore essential. This book provides information on the recognition, biology, ecology and medical importance of the arthropods that affect human health. The fifth edition of this popular textbook is completely updated and incorporates the latest strategies for controlling insects, ticks and mites. Numerous illustrations, with new colour photographs of some of the most important vectors, aid recognition. A glossary of entomological and epidemiological terms is included, along with a list of commonly used insecticides and their trade names. Clearly presented in a concise style, this text is aimed at students of medical entomology, tropical medicine, parasitology and pest control. It is also essential reading for physicians, health officials and community health workers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reviews of the third edition: '... a very well written book that is well suited for its purpose as an introduction for students ... it would serve well as a quick refresher to the subject even for experienced medical entomologists.' The Lancet
'... undergraduate and postgraduate masters students can continue to rely on this affordable and reliable basic introduction to the discipline of medical entomology.' Parasitology
'This is an easy to understand introduction to the field of medical entomology for more readers than just students of biology and entomology ... [another] appropriate title might be 'Medical Entomology for Health Care Providers and Public Health Practitioners'.' Doody's Review Service
'... a 'must have' for those studying the discipline ... a continuing strength is its frequent updating cycle and the helpful addition and revision of the further reading section.' Richard D. Ward, Keele University
