Review of Medical and Veterinary Entomology is a fully searchable abstracts database of internationally published research on medical and veterinary entomology, covering not only insects but also other arthropods that are of medical and veterinary importance in the broadest sense.
Selected from the applied life sciences database CAB Abstracts, it includes the latest research on the subject, including taxonomy, molecular genetics, biochemistry, physiology, behaviour, ecology, faunistics, pesticides, entomopathogens and natural enemies, other control methods and sociocultural aspects of mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, lice, cockroaches, scorpions and other relevant arthropods of medical and veterinary importance (including wild animals as well as domestic ones); and also all aspects of bacterial and viral diseases transmitted by arthropod vectors. Invasive arthropods are covered if harmful to man, animals or domestic environments.
Review of Medical and Veterinary Entomology is updated weekly online, delivering all the latest searchable summaries covering key English and non-English language journal articles, reports, conferences and books about medical and veterinary entomology.
Created and indexed by subject specialists, it provides access to these abstracts using comprehensive indexing and classification codes. It includes a fully searchable backfile to 1973 of over 227,000 abstracts with over 9,000 new records added each year.
Review of Medical and Veterinary Entomology is also available in print as a monthly journal with author, subject and serials cited indexes.
All aspects, including biology and control, of haematophagous or blood-feeding arthropods, such as
Disease vectors and intermediate hosts
All aspects, including biology and control, of arthropod vectors of diseases caused by viruses, bacteria and parasites. Such vectors include:
Arthropod intermediate hosts of parasites, such as cyclopoid copepepod intermediate hosts of guineaworm (Dracunculus).
Parasitic arthropods and arthropod parasitoses
All aspects, including biology and control, of arthropods parasitic on man and wild and domestic vertebrates, and the diseases that they cause. These include:
Synanthropic and zoophilic arthropods
All aspects, including biology and control, of arthropods which are associated with buildings (houses, hospitals, restaurants, etc) and/or humans more generally, or which are intimately associated with wild or domestic vertebrates or their nests and burrows. Includes:
Carrion and dung insects and mites
All aspects, including the behaviour and ecology, of arthropods associated with animal carrion, carcasses and faeces. Includes:
All aspects, including the biology and control, of arthropods which are allergenic to humans and other animals, such as
Also includes the study of arthropod allergens
All aspects, including the biology and control, of insects and other arthropods which sting, such as
Also includes caterpillars (Lepidoptera) and spiders (Araneae) with urticating hairs.
Venomous and poisonous arthropods
All aspects, including the biology and control, of venomous or toxic insects and arachnids, such as
All aspects of the biochemistry and molecular biology of toxins and venoms of insects and arachnids, including apamin, cantharidin, mastoparan and melittin.
All aspects of vector-borne viral diseases and disease agents (arboviruses), including:
All aspects of vector-borne bacterial, rickettsial and spirochaetal diseases and disease agents, including:
Selected aspects (epidemiology, vector-parasite relationships, vector control) of vector-borne diseases caused by protozoa, including:
Selected aspects (epidemiology, vector-parasite relationships, vector control) of vector-borne diseases caused by helminths
Pest management and vector control
All aspects of the management and control of arthropods of medical and veterinary importance. Subjects covered include:
Other aspects of arthropods in relation to public health and animal health
