Review of Medical and Veterinary Entomology

Review of Medical and Veterinary Entomology

"An excellent gateway to all current 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."

Now available - complete access to the archive for this journal click here for more information

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 250,000 abstracts with over 12,000 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.
