ELEC 532 Topics in Veterinary Entomology

(1cr.) (Didactic 0.9 cr. / Laboratory 0.1 cr.)

The goal of this course is to introduce the biology, epidemiology and control of insects and other arthropods of veterinary significance. One of the course requirements is for students to compile a written review of contemporary research literature on a specific insect-veterinary problem. This review is to include the current understanding, diagnosis, prevention/control/treatment strategies and a rationale for further research in this area. At the end of the course students deliver an oral presentation on their findings.
