Mosquitoes of the Southeastern United States is a full-color, highly illustrated guide to the sixty-four known species of mosquitoes in eleven genera that populate the Southeast [defined here as MS-n.FL-NC-TN]

This book’s usefulness to mosquito control programs in the Southeast and beyond cannot be overstated. Not only for native species, but for new species introduced from exotic locales, mosquitoes must be properly identified in order to know how best to control them. This volume will also be valuable to medical and public health specialists working on mosquito-borne diseases, such as malaria, dengue, yellow fever, West Nile virus, and filariasis.

Mosquitoes of the Southeastern United States is the first guide to integrate full-color photography, illustrated keys, and current information on the biology of mosquitoes into one definitive resource.

Nathan D. Burkett-Cadena is a research entomologist in the Department of Global Health at the University of South Florida. He has published more than twenty professional papers in scientific journals and one book chapter, "Morphological Adaptations of Parasitic Arthropods," in the second edition of Medical and Veterinary Entomology.
