Features

  • Comprehensively covers microbial control of vector-borne diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya
  • Describes molecular genetics of vector biology and behaviour that is used for developing new strategies of vector control
  • Emphasizes ecofriendly microbial control methods
  • Describes vector borne diseases and control using microorganisms including bacteria, cyanobacteria, actinobacteria fungi, algae, protozoa for vectors such as ticks, mites, triatomine bugs, tsetse flies, blackflies, snails
  • Provides collective information on novel microbial research advances in control of vector-borne diseases which scattered over numerous periodicals and electronic databases

Summary

Vector-borne diseases have increasingly emerged as significant causes of human illnesses worldwide, largely due to environmental changes (deforestation), population movements (migration and travelling), international trades, and buildup of drug resistance. These are presenting major challenge to the efficacy and use of conventional tools for controlling vector-borne diseases. Therefore, use of microbial approach for the control of vector-borne diseases is gaining importance. This book comprehensively reviews vector-borne diseases and their microbial control, emphasizing majorly on ecofriendly ways of microbial control.
