These data suggest that regional vector control measures would be equally effective in both northern and southern localities sampled, but also that insecticide resistant genes may spread rapidly within this region.

The book adds nicely to a growing body of scholarship on the history of public health campaigns not only in Argentina but throughout Latin America and elsewhere. It also fits into an expanding branch of environmental history that links the history of medicine and science with environmental history by examining intersecting histories of disease, public health, landscape perceptions, and society.

This contribution constitutes a point of focus for future studies involving the interaction between the parasites and the potential risk that humans are exposed to.

Anopheles pseudopunctipennis is an important malaria vector in Argentina but the role of Anopheles argyritarsis in the transmission of the parasite is still unknown. Abundance patterns of both species and their relationship to climatic variables were studied in the subtropical mountainous forest in northwestern Argentina.
