For medical, veterinary, entomology and public health students, this acclaimed textbook has been fully updated and revised to reflect the most recent advances. Each chapter is structured with the student in mind, organized by the major headings of Taxonomy, Morphology, Life History, Behavior and Ecology, Public Health and Veterinary Importance, and Prevention and Control. This second edition includes separate chapters devoted to each of the taxonomic groups of insects and arachnids of medical or veterinary concern, including spiders, scorpions, mites, and ticks. Internationally recognized editors Mullen and Durden surpass the competition by including extensive coverage of both medical and veterinary entomological importance.

* Follows in the tradition of Herm's Medical and Veterinary Entomology
* The latest information on developments in entomology relating to public health and veterinary importance
* Two separate indexes for enhanced searchability: Taxonomic and Subject

New to this edition:
* Three new chapters
- Morphological Adaptations of Parasitic Arthropods
- Forensic Entomology
- Molecular Tools in Medical and Veterinary Entomology
* 1700 word glossary
* Appendix of Arthropod-Related Viruses of Medical-Veterinary Importance
* Numerous new full-color images, illustrations and maps throughout

Gary Mullen is Professor of Entomology emeritus in the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at Auburn University, AL, USA. He earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in entomology at Cornell University before serving as medical entomologist and administrator of the Pennsylvania Vector Control Program, Allegheny County Health Department, Pittsburgh, PA. He joined the faculty of Auburn University in 1975 as a medical-veterinary entomologist, acarologist, and aquatic ecologist, teaching courses and conducting research at Auburn for 34 years. His major areas of research have focused on biting flies, notably mosquitoes and biting midges, and ticks as vectors of animal pathogens
