Biological and environmental control of disease vectors.

Book cover for Biological and environmental control of disease vectors.


This book, inclusive of 11 chapters, discusses various non-pesticide-based control strategies against several medically-important disease vector species, including those relevant to the control of malaria, dengue, schistosomiasis, and lymphatic filariasis. Each chapter is dedicated to the discussion of a specific strategy, which includes biological control with arthropods, fungi, and larvivorous f...

Integrated vector management.

This chapter provides an overview on the concept of integrated vector management, as well as describes its application in the control of medically-important vectors (i.e., Anopheles and Stegomyia mosquitoes) and vector-borne diseases (i.e., malaria, lymphatic filariasis, diarrhoea).
