Recent Advances in Acarology, Volume II, had its inception in the V International Congress of Acarology held at Michigan State University in August 1978. This two-volume work includes the contents of the symposia and a selection of contributions to the workshops and submitted paper sessions. These volumes examine subjects such as strategies in pest management of mites and ticks, topics encompassing pheromone communication, resistance of mites and ticks to acaricides, nonchemical control of ticks, new acaricides, nutritional ecology/control, and biological control. This book is devoted primarily to medical and veterinary acarology: biology, ecology, management, disease transmission, and pheromonal communication. It also contains a section covering systematics, morphology, and evolution; and a section on the evolution of hosts and their parasites. Management strategies for medical and veterinary acari are dependent on sound investigations of biology and ecology. Such investigations, beginning with contributions on the biology of spotted fever ticks, are discussed. It sets forth appropriate methodology for ecological studies, describes the zoogeography and biological adaptations of one species, and reviews the ecological associations of the two.
