Book description

Blood-sucking insects transmit many of the most debilitating diseases to man including malaria, sleeping sickness, filariasis, dengue, typhus and plague. Additionally these insects cause major economic losses in agriculture by direct damage to livestock. This new edition of The Biology of Blood-Sucking in Insects has been fully updated since it was first published in 1991. It provides a unique, topic-led commentary on the biological aspects that are common to blood-sucking insects. This account focuses on the biological adaptations that clearly suit the blood-sucking habit and further discusses host–insect interactions and the transmission of parasites by blood-sucking insects. It also outlines the medical, social and economic impact of blood-sucking insects. The final chapter is designed as a useful quick-reference section. Written in a clear, concise fashion and well illustrated throughout, the text will be of direct interest to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of medical and veterinary entomology and parasitology.


‘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.‘

'… 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.'

'… a useful and up-to-date book that will be of interest to medical and veterinary medical entomologists and parasitologists …'
