Özet:
Mosquitoes and Their Control presents a wealth of information on the bionomics, systematics, ecology, research techniques and control of both nuisance and disease vector mosquitoes in an easily readable style, providing practical guidelines and important information for professionals and laymen alike. Ninety-two European species and more than 100 globally important vector and nuisance species are included in the book. Most of them, including all European species, are described in the fully illustrated identification keys, followed by a detailed description of the morphology, biology, distribution and medical importance of each species, including over 700 detailed drawings. Mosquitoes and Their Control includes: systematics and biology medical significance research techniques illustrated identification keys for larval and adult mosquito genera morphology, ecology, and distribution of the species identified in the keys biological, chemical, physical and genetic control of mosquitoes Mosquitoes and Their Control is a valuable tool for vector ecologists, entomologists, and all those involved with mosquito control, biology, ecology, and systematics world-wide. It will especially benefit those professionals, scientists and students dealing with mosquitoes and their control on a day-to-day basis. Society as a whole stands to gain from improved, environmentally responsible mosquito management programs designed on the basis of a broader understanding of mosquitoes and their control, as provided in this enlightening book.

Mosquitoes and Their Control includes: systematics and biology, medical significance, research techniques, illustrated identification keys for larval and adult mosquito general, morphology, ecology, and distribution of the species identified in the keys, biological, chemical, physical and genetic control of mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes and Their Control is a valuable tool for vector ecologists, entomologists, and all those involved with mosquito control, biology, ecology, and systematics world-wide.

Produced by an eminently qualified group of scientists, this book contains nearly all of the information readers could wish to know about this nasty family of flies ... if readers are interested in European mosquitoes. The detailed text is divided into four sections. The first treats general mosquito biology, including description of life cycles, medical importance, collection and preservation techniques, and morphology. Section 2 contains taxonomic keys for the identification of adults and larvae of the 92 European species. Section 3 presents specific details for each of the species: morphological descriptions, ecology, and distribution. Keys and descriptions are supplied with excellent illustrations. The final section revolves around various aspects of mosquito control. Since a few of the species live on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, some of the biological information presented will be significant for North American workers. The book will undoubtedly be found in the libraries of many entomologists who must deal with these blood-imbibing flies from either the medical or the control angles. Although this is a terrific reference, the European focus will reduce the overall usefulness of the book in North America. ^BSumming Up: Optional. Lower-level undergraduates and above. P. K.
