Medical and veterinary entomology by Gary R Mullen( Book )

41 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medical and Veterinary Entomology is a comprehensive text and is primarily intended for graduate students and upper level undergraduates studying the medical and veterinary significance of insects and related arthropods. The book will also appeal to a larger audience, specialists and non-specialists alike, including entomologists, parasitologists, biologists, epidemiologists, physicians, public health personnel, veterinarians, wildlife specialists and others looking for a readable, authoritative book on this topic. The first two chapters provide overviews of medical-veterinary entomology and epidemiology, respectively. These are followed by individual chapters devoted to each group of insects or arachnids of medical-veterinary importance and the health problems they can cause including their role as vectors of pathogens. Each of these chapters provides an overview of the taxonomy, biology and ecology of the group, and is followed by separate sections on their medical and veterinary importance, then by a section on prevention and control and, finally, by a list of references and further reading. Key Features * Nationally and internationally renowned contributing authors * Up to date and new information that is easy to locate, with extensive subheadings and highlighted key words throughout text * Includes extensive coverage of arachnids, including scorpions, solpugids, spiders, mites and ticks * Designed for teaching several courses including Medical Entomology, Veterinary Entomology or combined Medical-Veterinary Entomology courses
Philip Henry Gosse : science and art in Letters from Alabama and Entomologia alabamensis by Gary R Mullen( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philip Henry Gosse's detailed watercolors of Alabama's native insects and plants represent a landmark in the annals of American natural history. Offered for the first time are the complete full-color illustrations from Gosse's Entomologia Alabamensis, along with a biographical essay placing Gosse's work in the context of his long and fruitful life. Born in 1810 in Worcester, England, the young Philip Henry Gosse developed a passion for the natural world. Having learned the basics of miniature portraiture from his father, Gosse quickly took for his artistic subjects the flourishing marine life he discovered along the English coast. In May, 1838, Gosse took a teaching job in Dallas County, Alabama. For the next eight months he collected the insect specimens that he would preserve in the beautifully detailed watercolors of Entomologia Alabamensis. In addition, he composed a highly personalized chronology of his life in a frontier culture, published eventually as Letters from Alabama. Following his return to England, Gosse went on to publish more than 40 books, producing some of the 19th century's finest illustrations of insects and marine organisms. Today, he is remembered as a popular writer of science for the general public and as a passionate artist whose work in Alabama and elsewhere captured and revealed the beauty and vitality of the natural world."--Publisher's description
Letters from Alabama : (U.S.) chiefly relating to natural history by Philip Henry Gosse( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new and improved edition of Letters from Alabama offers a valuable window into pioneer Alabama and the landscape and life-forms encountered by early settlers of the state. Philip Henry Gosse (1810-1888), a British naturalist, left home at age seventeen and made his way to Alabama in 1838. He was employed by Judge Reuben Saffold and other planters near Pleasant Hill in Dallas County as a teacher for about a dozen of their children, but his principal interest was natural history. Letters from Alabama is a personalized record of Gosse's perceptive observations durin

Comparative study of gravid-trap infusions for capturing blood-fed mosquitoes (diptera : culicidae) of the genera Aedes, Ochlerotatus, and Culex by Nathan Daniel Burkett( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Reports on field experiments in east-central Alabama to compare the attractiveness of selected gravid-trap infusions to ovipositing female mosquitoes of 3 medically important genera: Aedes, Ochlerotatus and Culex. Evaluations of infusions to collect medically important Culex females were performed in 2003 and 2004. Infusions were produced from Bermuda hay and 3 species of emergent aquatic plants: soft rush, Juncus effuses; a common sedge, Rhynchospora corniculata; and broad-leaf cattail, Typha latifolia, which are typical of Culex larval habitats. Experimental sites included a hardwood bottomland site bordering a marsh in Tuskegee National Forest, Macon County, AL and a soils bioremediation site in Lee County, AL. Carbon dioxide-baited miniature light traps were operated concurrent with gravid traps to monitor activity of various mosquito species at both sites. Gravid traps with hay infusion collected the greatest mean Culex quinquefasciatus and Culex restuans females in 2003 and in 2004. Traps with sedge infusion collected the second greatest mean of females for both species, followed by infusions of cattail and rush. The results indicate that hay infusion is highly attractive to Culex spp., such as Cx. quinquefasciatus and Cx. restuans, and is the infusion of choice for collecting medically important Culex spp. in gravid traps. In 2004 field experiments were conducted to compare the attractiveness of infusions made from commercially available garden products to an oak-leaf infusion standard to container-breeding Aedes and Ochlerotatus females. Three products selected from preliminary experiments (composted horse manure, dyed (red) hardwood mulch, and pine straw) were compared to an oak-leaf infusion under field conditions at 2 sites in Lee County, AL: an Automobile Salvage Yard, Phenix city and a suburban forested lot, Dean Road, Auburn. Container-breeding mosquitoes collected from gravid-traps included females of Ae. albopictus and Oc. triseriatus. Neither of these species demonstrated a preference for any of the infusions evaluated in experiments at either field site. In general, females of Culex spp. demonstrated selectivity when choosing an oviposition site while Aedes and Ochlerotatus females did not. Factors associated with oviposition behavior of the latter 2 genera most likely account for their lack of preference for any single infusion type
