This second volume is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of reptiles affected by arthropod parasites. Information is comprehensive and presented in annotated outline form for quick reference. Chapters are divided by arthropod groups (true bugs, flies, fleas, and ticks), and include
descriptions, hosts, host locations, sources of infestation and life cycles. The text also includes a chapter on laboratory procedures for the herpetoculturist, and a bibliography of more than 430 references.
"… an easy to use, resourceful guide for anyone
working with reptiles, either professionally or as a hobbyist…a valuable reference tool, especially for identification of flies and ticks. A must for anyone working with reptiles." -- Diane Callaway, Animal Keepers' Forum, Vol. 28, No. 1, 2001
"I opened this book wondering if it is really needed. The wealth of genera and species covered and the comprehensive data quickly convinced me that it is. It's nicely produced and by today's standards is inexpensive. Authors and
publishers are to be congratulated." -- Roger Avery, School of Biological Sciences, Bristol University, Parasitology, (2001), 122, 218.
