Virtual Issue - American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene Meeting - December 2011
We are pleased to present a selection of recent articles from Medical and Veterinary Entomology that we hope will be of interest to attendees of the ASTMH meeting. These include articles on vector behavior, including a report on the early biting behavoiur of Anopheles arabiensis and its implications for malaria control, a new transmission index for Human African Trypanosomaiasis which incorporates proportion infected and source of blood meal, novel control method for bedbugs, papers on the ecology and taxonomy of malaria vectors and triatomine bugs and updates on insecticide resistance in dengue vectors in Cuba and malaria mosquitoes in Benin.
Medical and Veterinary Entomology publishes articles on the biology and control of insects, ticks, mites and other arthropods of medical and veterinary importance. The principal interests are in experimental applied entomology, genetics, epidemiology, vector transmission, biosystematics, ecology and biological and chemical control methods. We have a number of topical reviews on these subjects scheduled to appear in upcoming issues and welcome further suggestions for future reviews.
We hope you will enjoy reading these articles and consider submitting work presented at this congress to Medical and Veterinary Entomology.
