' ... this book is good value and constitutes a useful and affordable text for the students ... the first edition of this medical entomology primer filled an important niche in the instructional literature, and this slightly improved, second edition should continue to fill that niche effectively.' Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology
'As an introduction for students lacking previous experience with the subject, this book will serve admirably. It is attractively printed and the illustrations - line drawings - are excellent. Service's writing is clear and to the point, and consequently the book is very understandable ... a very well written book that is well suited for its purpose as an introduction for students. It covers the most important topics in the field well ... although it is not designed to be a reference ... it would serve well as a quick refresher to the subject even for experienced medical entomologists. The book is well worth the price.' Bruce F. Eldridge, The Lancet
'The book is intended as a source of information for physicians, nurses, health officials, and community health workers. Its clear, concise writing style combined with numerous accurate line illustrations make it easily accessible to undergraduate and graduate students of medical entomology, parasitology, tropical medicine, and pest management ... provides students with a very readable account of a great many interesting, widespread arthropods.' Educational Media
'A clear, concise writing style combined with numerous, accurate illustrations makes this book easily understood to undergraduate and graduate students of medical entomology, parasitology, tropical medicine and pest management.' P. K. Das, Indian Journal of Medical Research
'... this text is aimed primarily at students, but it will also be an exemplary fundamental resource for medical and health professionals who are not trained in entomology. It is precisely the sort of reference work that laymen might hope to find in public libraries: authoritative but concise, and extensively illustrated.' Martin H. Villet, African Zoology
In the second edition of this popular student textbook, Professor Mike Service presents basic information on the recognition, biology and medical importance of arthropod vectors of disease and their control. All of the major groups of medically important arthropods are covered and all chapters have been thoroughly updated to take into account recent changes in control methodologies and the latest information on vector biology. Each chapter has its own further reading list and a useful glossary of terms has been added. A clear, concise writing style combined with numerous, accurate line illustrations makes this book easily accessible to undergraduate and graduate students of medical entomology, parasitology, tropical medicine and pest management, for whom it should be essential reading. The book is also intended as a source of information for physicians, nurses, health officials and community health workers.
