'In this well-written book, Lehane provides a masterly and well-referenced summary of key aspects of the biology of blood-sucking habit ... This is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to this important subject and deserves to be widely used.' Biologist
'... provides perhaps the most comprehensive, and a very readable, teaching text for medical entomology available today ... the book provides an excellent start point for students and researchers into all the subject areas associated with blood-feeding insects ... This is a great follow up to a good first edition. The Biology of Blood-Sucking in Insects will be used by teachers of medical entomology, and the cost leaves it well within the student budget. I will be recommending this excellent text to my students.' Parasitology
'... a useful and up-to-date book that will be of interest to medical and veterinary medical entomologists and parasitologists ...' Journal of Insect Conservation
Biology of Blood-Sucking Insects provides a unique, topic-led commentary on the biological aspects that are common to blood-sucking insects. This account focuses on the biological modifications that clearly suit the blood-sucking habit and outlines the medical, social and economic impact of blood-sucking insects. It further discusses host-insect interactions and the transmission of parasites by blood-sucking insects. The final chapter is designed as a useful quick-reference section. The second edition has been fully updated since it was first published in 1991.
