The Oestrid Flies: Biology, Host-Parasite Relationships, Impact and Management
This book is an in-depth review and analysis of the biology of adults and larvae of the Family Ostridae. Oestrid flies, commonly known as botfly, warble fly and screw worm, are a major pest of domestic and wild animals, especially cattle, in the Northern hemisphere. They cause myiasis (invasion of living tissue by the larvae) by laying eggs on the animal’s skin. This book presents a comparative investigation of life histories and adaptation to parasitism exhibited by this unique family of flies.
