A worthy complement to the first volume's outstanding achievement, this is the final part of a two-volume work on the biology, morphology, ecology, disease relationships, and control of ticks. It explores survival strategies of non-nidicolous ticks as opposed to nidicolous ticks. It also examines immunological responses to tick parasitism, the role of ticks in disease transmission, and the control of ticks through acaricides and recent innovative approaches using knowledge of tick and host ecology, tick pheromones, hormones, and modelling. An appendix is also included, with details on methods for collecting ticks in the natural environment, preparing ticks for study, and laboratory rearing.
