Mosquito ecology

£120.00

Product description

Heavy hardback book with an illustrated cover. The cover is in very good condition with only minor bumping to the lower front corner. Internally the book is clean, bright and tightly bound. It is illustrated with black and white photographs, drawings and diagrams. This is a second edition of this title, published in 1993 by Elsevier Science Publishers. The book is subtitled "Field Sampling Methods".

Mosquitoes are vectors of disease to humans, spreading malaria to an estimated 260 million people and causing some 1 to 2 million deaths a year. Numerous methods have been devised to catch mosquitoes and many approaches employed to study their ecology and behaviour. This edition includes work on areas such as estimating adult survivorship and new sampling methods. It provides detailed descriptions and critical evaluations of traps and sampling methods that have been used to study egg, larval and adult populations. More information has been included on mosquito behaviour and ecology, such as how mosquitoes locate their hosts and are attracted to traps, larval aggregation and dispersal patterns, oviposition attractants and density dependant mortalities. New sections describe methods of remote sensing of larval habitats, blood-meal identification, forage ratios, measurements of vectorial capacity, and statistical considerations such as sample size.;This book is aimed at field workers concerned with mosquito surveillance and control who wish to update their knowledge on methods for sampling larval and adult populations; scientists working in the area of disease epidemiology who need to know the methods available for measuring mosquito survival rates and dispersal; those whose interest is in the ecology and population dynamics of mosquitoes who are looking for an introduction to the literature.
