The origin and development of PMD as a repellent and a comprehensive review of its performance against Aedes, Anopheles, Culex, and Ochlerotatus are described and original data from field and laboratory studies involving large numbers of subjects are presented.
Landscape Structure and Plague Occurrence in Black-tailed Prairie Dogs on Grasslands of the Western USA
Landscape structure influences the abundance and distribution of many species, including pathogens that cause infectious diseases. Black-tailed prairie dogs in the western USA have declined
And the beak shall inherit - evolution in response to invasion.
It is reported that native taxa in colonized regions may swiftly evolve to exploit such emancipated exotic species because of selection caused by invaders, and a native biota that initially permits invasion may rapidly respond in ways that ultimately facilitate control.
The life history and ecology of the cliff swallow bug, Oeciacus vicarius (Hemiptera: Cimicidae)
1. The life history of the CL~$’ swallow bug Oeciacus vicarius is closely associated with that of the cl@ swallow Hirundo pyrrhonota during the bird’s three month breeding period in the Nearctic
Bird-parasite interactions: ecology, evolution and behaviour.
The aim of this book is to provide a history of host-parasite interactions in birds of prey and provide a perspective on the role of parasites in the natural history of these interactions.
Testing the Generality of a Trophic-cascade Model for Plague
Climate may affect the dynamics of infectious diseases by shifting pathogen, vector, or host species abundance, population dynamics, or community interactions. Black-tailed prairie dogs
Lyme disease in California: interrelationship of Ixodes pacificus (Acari: Ixodidae), the western fence lizard (Sceloporus occidentalis), and Borrelia burgdorferi.

Findings suggest that S. occidentalis, although an important host of I. pacificus immatures, may be less important as a source for infecting ticks with B. burgdorferi, and the relationship of immature western black-legged ticks to the western fence lizard is investigated.

The diel questing behavior of adult Ixodes pacificus Cooley and Kohls was examined in relation to meteorological and seasonal factors in outdoor arenas in northern California and positively correlated with relative humidity and negatively correlated with ambient temperature and light and soil surface temperature.
Specialization of Jadera Species (Hemiptera: Rhopalidae) on the Seeds of Sapindaceae (Sapindales), and (Revolutionary Responses of Defense and Attack
Strong evidence is provided that serinethine rhopalids evolved on host plants in the Sapindales and that they are specialists on this plant family.
