Medicalveterinary Entomology Literature

Textbooks or monographs pertaining to medical entomology, veterinary entomology, or the combined discipline of medical-veterinary entomology are listed under these headings at the end of this chapter. Most of these publications emphasize arthropod morphology, biology, systematics, and disease relationships, whereas some of the more recent texts, such as Beaty and Marquardt (1996) and Crampton et al. (1997), emphasize molecular aspects of medical-veterinary entomology. Other works are helpful regarding common names of arthropods of medical-veterinary importance (Pittaway 1992), surveillance techniques (Bram 1978), control measures (Drummond et al. 1988), or ectoparasites (Andrews 1977, Marshall 1981, Kim 1985, Uilenberg 1994, Barnard and Durden

1999). Publications that devote substantial sections to arthropods associated with wildlife and the pathogens they transmit include Davis and Anderson (1971), Davidson etal. (1981), Fowler (1986) and Davidson and Nettles (1997).

Several journals and periodicals are devoted primarily to medical and/or veterinary entomology. These include the Journal of Medical Entomology, published by the Entomological Society of America (Lanham, MD); Medical and Veterinary Entomology, published by the Royal Entomological Society of London (UK); Journal of Vector Ecology, published by the Society of Vector Ecologists (Corona, CA); Vector Borne and Zoonotic Diseases, published by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., Larchmont, New York; and Review of Medical and Veterinary Entomology, published by CAB International (Wallingford, UK). Journals specializing in parasitology, tropical medicine, or wildlife diseases that also include articles on medical-veterinary entomology include Parasitology, published by the British Society for Parasitology; Journal of Parasitology, published by the American Society of Parasitologists (Lawrence, KS); Parasite-Journal de la Société Française de Parasitologic, published by PRINCEPS Editions (Paris, France); Advances in Disease Vector Research, published by Springer-Verlag (New York); Bulletin of the World Health Organization, published by the World Health Organization (Geneva, Switzerland); Journal of Wildlife Diseases, published by the Wildlife Disease Association (Lawrence, KS); Emerging Infectious Diseases, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Atlanta, GA); the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, published by the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (Northbrook, IL); and Memorias Do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz; published by the Institute Oswaldo Cruz (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). Various Internet Web sites pertaining to medical-veterinary entomology can also be accessed for useful information.
