Host immune responses to ectoparasitic arthropods are critical elements in determining the nature of animal host-arthropod relationships, including transmission of vector-borne pathogens. This is the first book to provide a comprehensive analysis for both the student and specialist of the emerging field of "immunoentomology". Our fundamental understanding of this topic has increased dramatically in recent years. Chapters prepared by specialists from the USA, UK and Australia provide comprehensive reviews of key subjects. The book concludes with a consideration of the application of fundamental knowledge about the immunology of the host-arthropod interface to the development of anti-arthropod vaccines. It is aimed particularly at medical and veterinary entomologists and acarologists, as well as immunologists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This collection of review articles on the interactions of host-ectoparasite arthropods is well presented in 13 chapters. The articles are well written and of interest to students and scientists concerned with interactions between parasitic arthropods and their hosts. The articles emphasize host
defenses and ectoparasitic arthropod escape mechanisms against them. The authors have dealt extensively with the subject matter and provided both a thorough background and current findings, rather than highlighting solely their own research. . . . This book will serve as a great reference to those
interested in the complex issues of host-parasitic arthropod interactions. The species discussed are ecologically and economically important. The contributors have written excellent and comprehensive articles that will spur interest on further research in this area."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
