The biology of blood sucking in insects 2nd edition

The Biology of Blood-Sucking in Insects 2nd Edition PDF, Blood-sucking insects transmit many of the most debilitating dis-eases in humans, including malaria, sleeping sickness, filaria-sis, leishmaniasis, dengue, typhus and plague. In addition, these insects cause major economic losses in agriculture both by direct damage to livestock and as a result of the veterinary diseases, such as the various trypanosomiases, that they transmit.

The second edition of The Biology of Blood-Sucking in Insects is a unique, topic-led commentary on the biological themes that are common in the lives of blood-sucking insects. To do this effectively it concentrates on those aspects of the biology of these fascinating insects that have been clearly modified in some way to suit the blood-sucking habit. The book opens with a brief outline of the medical, social and economic impact of blood-sucking insects. Insects as Animal Feed, Novel Ingredients for Use in Pet, Aquaculture and Livestock Diets

Further chapters cover the evolution of the blood-sucking habit, feeding preferences, host location, the ingestion of blood and the various physiological adaptations for dealing with the blood meal. Discussions on host–insect interactions and the transmission of parasites by blood-sucking insects are followed by the final chapter, which is designed as a useful quick-reference section covering the different groups of insects referred to in the text.
