The cockroach is truly an evolutionary wonder. The book explores the fascinating natural history and behavior of cockroaches, describing their various colors, sizes, and shapes, as well as how they move on land, in water, and through the air.
The book provides an overview of insects, mites and ticks that directly cause diseases of humans and domestic animals, and that transmit microbes causing disease. It is aimed at students and practitioners in medical and veterinary health services.
