Medical and Veterinary Entomology

Naturevolume 98page386 (1917) | Download Citation



THIS excellent text-book is based on manuscript used in teaching in the University of California and in the San Francisco Veterinary College. It is not, intended to be a very comprehensive treatise, but an attempt to systematise the subject. It, however, goes beyond this, as new matter is here and there incorporated, .thus making the volume of greater value. It is mainly adapted to the American continent, but will be found of general usefulness elsewhere. For instance, there is only a key of the North American genera of Tabanidæ. The first chapter is an introduction. The second deals with parasites and parasitism in general the third with insect anatomy and classification, with a useful working key to the orders of insects. The mouth-parts are shortly but very concisely treated in chap. iv.; this portion might well have been amplified.
