Insecticide Resistance in Arthropods

Insecticide Resistance in Arthropods This monograph was written with the aim of covering all that is known to date on insecticide resistance in those arthropods that affect man and animals, including unpublished material communicated to the World Health Organization Expert Committee on Insecticides in the past decade. The word "resistance" applies when insecticide dosages that were formerly effective meet with control failure. In view of its importance to public health, it is not surprising to find so extensive a literature on this subject. The monograph is divided into four chapters devoted to the nature and characterization of insecticide resistance, the groups of insects that characteristically are or are not vectors to man, the development of resistance all over the world, and the physiology of resistance to DDT and other insecticides. It is concisely and clearly written, and its practical value is increased by numerous tables and detailed charts that consider increase of resistance, progress http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
