Description

British mosquitoes are often overlooked by entomologists in favour of their wilder, tropical cousins. This book brings together all of the current research and information on British mosquitoes, providing a comprehensive, accessible guide to the study and identification of British species. Chapters cover life histories, identification and habitat, accompanied by detailed illustrations. Detailed keys for the identification of eggs, larvae, pupae and adults form the centre of the book, which also includes practical guidance for studying mosquitoes, including where to find them and how to recognise them in all stages of their life cycle. This book is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to broaden their knowledge of the British mosquito, from those with an amateur interest, to students and professionals seeking to publish research on the species. This is a reprint of the first edition published in 1990 (ISBN 0-85546-275-2).

Author Biography

Amedeo Terzi (1872 -1956) was an Italian illustrator and entomologist specialising in Diptera. He was engaged by Sir Patrick Manson (1844-1922) as an illustrator for the London School of Tropical Medicine. He executed numerous zoological illustrations, mostly of parasitic insects, principally Diptera, estimating that he had accomplished 37,000 drawings in the course of his career, in 55 books and more than 500 other publications.
