Habitats for vectors of disease
This chapter considers the many disease-causing and disease-carrying organisms, chiefly invertebrates that live in temporary water habitats. Important examples include blood flukes (schistomiasis), nematodes (Guinea worm), and mosquitoes (malaria, yellow fever, elephantiasis). The biology of these species is presented alongside a discussion of their economic and humanitarian costs, and the eradication/control methods aimed both at these organisms and their habitats.
