Epizootiology and Microbial Control

  • Y. Tanada
Part of the Comparative Pathobiology book series (CPATH, volume 1)


The microsporidia are among the most common pathogens found infecting insects under natural field conditions. This is increasingly evident as greater numbers of insect pathologists become acquainted with these obligatory minute pathogens. Their numbers and those of susceptible insect hosts have increased significantly during the past decade, especially where extensive studies with specific groups of insects, e.g., mosquitoes, have been conducted in search of promising pathogens for use in microbial control.
