This is the second of a two-volume work on the biology, morphology, ecology, disease relationships, and control of ticks. Volume 2 explores survival strategies of non-nidicolous ticks (those dispersed throughout the open landscape and attacking passing hosts) versus nidicolous ticks (those surviving in caves, burrows, nests, or man-made shelters). It also examines immunological responses to tick parasitism, the role of ticks in disease transmission, and the control of ticks through acaricides and recent innovative approaches using knowledge of tick and host ecology, tick pheromones, hormones, and modelling. An appendix is also included, with details on methods for collecting ticks in the natural environment, preparing ticks for study, and laboratory rearing. This book is a worthy complement to the first volume's outstanding achievement, and will be of interest to entomologists, physicians, veterinarians, and public health officers.Sonenshine, Daniel E. is the author of 'Biology of Ticks: Volume 2', published 1993 under ISBN 9780195084313 and ISBN 0195084314.
