How do insect vectors of disease find their animal hosts?
Once a host is located, how do insects deploy their intricate mouthparts and the extraordinary complexities of salivary chemistry to secure a blood meal?
* Contributions from the leading researchers in entomology * Discusses the physiological diversity in insects * Includes in-depth reviews with valuable information for a variety of entomology disciplines
