This practical book covers all aspects of the biology of malaria vectors, with notes on the vectors of dengue. Authored primarily by renowned field entomologist Jacques Derek Charlwood, who has vast experience working on mosquito biology, ecology and the evaluation of new vector control tools across many different continents, specialist contributors also address additional aspects of vector control, genetics and resistance, Aedes biology, and malaria models. The book is designed to fill the gap between very specialised texts and undergraduate books on general disease vectors, and is ideal as a textbook for postgraduate courses in entomology and mosquito vectors of disease.
