The Practical Study of Malaria and other Blood Parasites

    Article metrics


    THE issue of three editions of this book in the space of five years is eloquent testimony to its usefulness, and we can well understand that, to the worker in the tropics, far away, perhaps, from libraries, laboratories, and fellow-workers, it is invaluable. The authors are both well known for their researches on tropical diseases, and Dr. Stephens is lecturer in the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, so that they know the needs of the research student. In the present edition various alterations have been made—trypanosomes, the Haemamœbidae and spirochætes are described at greater length than before, the chapter on ticks has been re-written and extended, the consideration of mosquitoes has been confined to the Anophelinæ, and the chapter dealing with Filariæ has been omitted.
