This latest volume in this series contains articles on the physiology of human and animal disease vectors.The papers in this special issue give rise to key themes for the future and make progress towards answering such questions as:
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
