This small manual summarizes current knowledge pertaining to the biology, taxonomy, and control of parasitic mites that have medical and economic importance. Each organism is listed by species, genus, and family name. It is illustrated by line drawings, described fully, and discussed with respect to life cycle, control, and importance in medicine. There are pertinent references in each section and a complete index.

Because of the increasing awareness, of late, of the role of mites as vectors and producers of disease, this thoroughly readable manual is a welcome and timely source book and contribution to the subject.
