0 Reviews
The only compendium to provide thorough coverage of ticks and mites, this text/reference brings together comprehensive information not otherwise available except through a detailed search of the literature. Beginning with an introductory overview and general characterization of mites, it goes on to detail their morphology, anatomy, and metabolic systems; specific descriptions of orders and superfamilies; and five areas in which mites affect human welfare: health and medicine, agriculture, stored products, biological control, and ecological systems. Each chapter is followed by extensive literature citations and references, including some not yet in print. The text is lavishly illustrated with approximately 300 figures, including line drawings, photographs, and scanning electron micrographs.
