About the Authors
  • Widespread and increasing resistance to most available acaracides threatens both global livestock industries and public health. This necessitates better understanding of ticks and the diseases they transmit in the development of new control strategies. Ticks: Biology, Disease and Control is written by an international collection of experts and covers in-depth information on aspects of the biology of the ticks themselves, various veterinary and medical tick-borne pathogens, and aspects of traditional and potential new control methods. A valuable resource for graduate students, academic researchers and professionals, the book covers the whole gamut of ticks and tick-borne diseases from microsatellites to satellite imagery and from exploiting tick saliva for therapeutic drugs to developing drugs to control tick populations. It encompasses the variety of interconnected fields impinging on the economically important and biologically fascinating phenomenon of ticks, the diseases they transmit and methods of their control.

    • Arose from the Parasitology Supplement Ticks: Biology, Disease and Control (Cambridge University Press, 2004, Vol. 129)
    • Includes a chapter on Lyme diseases co-written by European and North American experts
    • Includes an up-to-date list of more than 900 valid genus and species names, a full list of tick-borne viruses, and each chapter contains a comprehensive reference list
