Rarely does such a useful book come along, one that is also most readable and extremely helpful not only to dermatologists but to any physician who has to give advice about insects and other pests.
Urban Entomology by Walter Ebeling is a real gem. Dr Ebeling is professor of entomology and an entomologist in the experimental station at UCLA. He has authored and co-authored many entomology papers and in 1959 published a book, Subtropical Fruit Pests.
This remarkable book has just been published and contains 695 pages, with 14 chapters. There are 391 very clear and informative black and white photos and 107 most exceptional and instructive color photos. The print is very readable, printed on high-grade, glossy paper. There are 49 pages of references and 25 pages of thorough, easily read index.
This work is concerned with pests in the urban community and includes those of public health
