Book: Olfaction in vector-host interactions

August 5, 2010 - 19:49 -- Bart G.J. Knols

This is a book authored by 37 experts in this field with a focus on the role of olfaction (the sense of smell) in the multitude of interactions between arthropods and their blood hosts. Half the book deals with malaria vectors, from basic lab studies to open field research on odour-mediated behaviour. The book provides a state-of-the-art account of research in this field.
