Several billion people are at daily risk of life threatening
vector-borne diseases such as malaria, trypanosomiasis and dengue.
This volume describes the way in which the causal pathogens of such
diseases interact with the vectors that transmit them. It details
the elegant biological adaptations that have enabled pathogens to
live with their vectors and, in some circumstances, to control
them. This knowledge has led to novel preventative strategies in
the form of antibiotics and new vaccines which are targeted not at
the pathogen itself but at its specific vector.
