Ecology of Malaria Vectors

«<p>This book represents not only a future ‘standard’ text for students but that it is crafted from a life of personal experience from the most talented medical entomologist I know. The dedication and insights that Derek Charlwood has contributed over the years have been truly unique... This depth of understanding comes shing through in <em>The Ecology of Malaria Vectors</em>, drawing strongly, as it does, on the authors’ impressive publication portfolio. the gold here is that this book lays the most solid of foundations upon which students of <i>Anopheles </i>biology in the field can build their future research investigations. I would urge those starting or even developing further their careers as malaria vector biologists to read this book before looking at a gene or a database, get to know the target organism before diving deep into its molecular biology, complex mapping, or genetic control approaches. </p> <p>The book takes the reader through more than the title su»

This practical book covers all aspects of the biology of malaria vectors, with notes on the vectors of dengue. It is the first work in this field to concentrate on mosquitoes, rather than covering all disease vectors. Authored by renowned field entomologist Jacques Derek Charlwood, it disseminates his vast experience working on mosquito biology, ecology and the evaluation of new vector control tools across five continents over the past 40 years.


Covering all aspects from classification and systematics, population dynamics, vector control, to surveillance and sampling, epidemics, and a selection of case histories, the book also considers genetics and resistance, Aedes biology, and malaria and dengue models. It is designed to fill the gap between very specialized texts and undergraduate books on general disease vectors, and is ideal as a textbook for postgraduate courses in entomology and mosquito vectors of disease.

Jacques Derek Charlwood is Honorary Fellow of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK; Honorary Fellow of Global Health and Tropical Medicine, IHMT, Lisbon, Portugal, Lecturer College of Health Sciences, Asmara, Eritrea. He has 42 years of working in the field in Brazil, Papua New Guinea, Tanzania, São Tomé, Cambodia, Mozambique, Ghana, The Gambia and 100+ publications on malaria vectors. Charlwood is known for his work on insecticide-treated bednets and was the entomologist for the first African malaria vaccine trial (in Tanzania). He worked in the epicentre of drug resistance emergence in S.E. Asia (in Cambodia) and was the implementer of the PAMVERC trial (in Tanzania).
