Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an easy to understand introduction to the field of medical entomology for more readers than just students of biology and entomology. It provides enough detail to serve as an adequate reference for its intended audience (other than entomologists). Although the title is well recognized and probably should not be changed, a more appropriate title might be Medical Entomology for Health Care Providers and Public Health Practitioners." Doody's Review Service

"...a very well written book that is well suited for its purpose as an introduction for students...it would serve well as a quick refresher to the subject even for experienced medical entomologists..." Lancet

Book Description

Arthropod vectors of human diseases, such as malaria and typhus, are a continuing threat to human health. Since its first edition, Medical Entomology for Students has proved a popular textbook by providing the reader with all the basic information on insects, mites and ticks that affect human health. It examines identification, the biology and ecology of these medically important arthropods and how they can be controlled. Medically important arthropods concern students of tropical medicine, parasitology and pest control. It also provides essential reading for physicians, nurses and community health workers.

Format: Paperback
This paperback volume is a bit pricey but worth it for the information contained. Line drawings accompany and compliment the text. This book is very much up-to-date. Two shortcomings kept it from a 5 star rating: the bees & wasps are not included, and the addition of some color plates would have been most helpful.

Format: Paperback
One of the best, most thorough short books out there on the subject -- easy to tote around, concise, yet readable and even enjoyable. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the stinging arthros are skipped out on, but if that's important to you, your best bet might be downloading the notes pages from the University of California's course pages website (I'd recommend, honestly, snagging all of their pages from their micro and parasitology departments -- these are GOOD notes and videos, priceless and yet price-less), and/or snagging a copy of the appropriate (and it will be longer) chapter on subject same from "Medical and Veterinary Entomology" (which is probably my 5-star GET THIS IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT text/reference and all-around reader on the subject. It's thorough, it's got good pictorial coverage, and it's incredibly readable -- but expensive (worth it, but what good is that if you can't afford it -- and you'll RARELY (read: probably NEVER) find a cheap used copy on here or anywhere).

As for this particular (short, handy, soft-cover and light) book: Note well that if you're taking an undergrad course in med (and maybe also vet) parasitology with entomology, this book is the most often used book in my experience. It can be well-supplemented (especially in the graphics section, which is admittedly poor, save for the very helpful line drawings and graphs) by John T. Sullivan's "Electronic Atlas of Parasitology" CD (currently in Version 2.02 (as far as I know), available from the author who is a professor at UC-San Francisco, via ebay, and possibly also via Amazon, for somewhere around $12-15).

All in all, I thoroughly recommend this book, ESPECIALLY for anybody reviewing for exams or finals, where it truly shines for its concision and well-thought-out format.

This book has been very useful to me. I am studying for a B.C.E (Board Certified Entomologist) and this book is detailed enough to be helpful, yet not so verbose as to make you want to poke your eyes out and feed them to the cat while reading it.
