Mosquito Ecology: Field Sampling Methods (Hardback)John B. Silver (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
The Third Edition of this popular reference work describes the methods and rationale for sampling mosquitoes. Originally written by Professor M. W. Service, the book has been updated by John B Silver. More than 1,000 new references have been added and out-of-date material has been removed. The book emphasizes the ecology and behavior of those species that play a role as vectors of human and animal diseases and infections. Designed to serve as a practical reference for field entomologists and mosquito control specialists, it describes sampling methods and trapping technologies and tools for the collection of mosquitoes from egg to adult.

From the reviews of the third edition:
"To have a new, updated edition is more than had been hoped for, and a real credit to John Silver ... who took on the necessary revision and produced such an excellent book. ... Mosquito Ecology is an essential purchase for any readers of the Annals who have an interest in vector-borne disease, and will be a welcome arrival for those researchers who have tried unsuccessfully to obtain the second edition. Hopefully, this third edition will remain available for a lot longer than the second." (P. J. McCall, Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology, Vol. 102 (7), 2008)
"Mosquito Ecology: Field Sampling Methods ... provide a resource for field officers wanting to more effectively sample adult and larval mosquito populations. ... the text is well illustrated, providing simple line drawings of many of the traps described ... . it is a resource that any mosquito worker, entomologist, wetland scientist or public health officer can use to find effective methods to sample mosquito populations to better understand the role these insects play in disease outbreaks as well as local ecosystems." (Cameron E Webb, Australian Journal of Entomology, Vol. 47, 2008)
