Springer Science & Business Media, Mar 14, 2013 - Science - 498 pages
Mosquitoes and their Control presents a multitude of information on bionomics, systematics, ecology and control of both pestiferous (nuisance) and disease vectors in an easily readable style providing practical guidance and important information to both professional and layman alike.
Ninety-two species and subspecies belonging to 8 genera and 18 subgenera are described in the fully illustrated identification keys to adult females and males and fourth-instar larvae. The illustrated keys are followed by a detailed description of the morphology, biology and distribution of each species including over 700 detailed drawings.
Mosquitoes and their Control includes:
-systematics and biology;
-fully illustrated identification keys for larval and adult mosquito genera;
-morphology, ecology and distribution of the 92 species identified in the keys;
-biological, chemical and physical control.
Mosquitoes and their Control is a valuable tool for vector ecologists, entomologists, and all those involved with mosquito control, biology, ecology and systematics worldwide. It will especially benefit the students, scientists and professionals dealing on a day-to-day basis with mosquitoes and their control. Society as a whole, stands to gain from improved, environmentally responsible mosquito management programmes designed on the basis of the broader understanding of mosquitoes and their control provided in this enlightening book.
