A Handbook for the Identification of Insects of Medical Importance

John Smart (Author) R.J. Whittick (Author) Karl Jordon (Author)

The book deals with the identification of old world arthropods of known medical importance. New world species have been excluded except when for the shake of completeness passing reference is made to some particularly important species which should be within the general knowledge of anyone interested in the subject of medical entomology. Quantitative analyses of insect populations and heir impact on man have led the medical entomologists into the field of epidemiology, and he may therefore be regarded as taking in this particular sphere, a part in the development of preventive medicine. The work has been undertaken by the author, who has been at pains to limit his text to matter which is essential to the accurate determination of the species, and a bare mention of the diseases with which they are associated. Every effort has also been made to present the subject in the simplest possible way. However, certain general aspects of the subject are outlined briefly and wherever possible fully labeled figures have been interested in the text to provide information on the morphology of the more important insects and other arthropods discussed.
