The Primate Malarias CD
DPDx offers The Primate Malarias CD-ROM from the Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria (DPDM) at CDC. The CD-ROM is an electronic version of the now out-of-print book that was published in 1971, authored by G. Robert Coatney, William E. Collins, McWilson Warren, and Peter G. Contacos; permission to reproduce this book was granted by the authors. The book summarizes knowledge on different species of Plasmodium that develop in nonhuman primates. It has served as a foundation for subsequent investigations on these parasites, their primate hosts, and their mosquito vectors. DPDM has made this electronic version available to the scientific community in hopes that it will stimulate and support continued interest in these parasites and their contribution to the understanding and control of malaria.
You can order The Primate Malarias CD-ROM free of charge through the DPDx website. Please contact us and include your name and COMPLETE mailing address in the email. Orders may also be placed via mail to the address listed at the bottom of the page.
Pictorial Keys CD
DPDx is proud to collaborate with the Division of Vector-Borne Diseases in distributing the Pictorial Keys: Arthropods, Reptiles, Birds and Mammals of Public Health Significance CD-ROM*. The CD-ROM is an electronic version of the now out-of-print 1969 Public Health Service publication. Identification of disease vectors is crucial for effective vector surveillance; these pictorial keys are useful training tools for persons who do not have advanced knowledge in vector and animal reservoir taxonomy. Ectoparasites such as mites and lice, and vectors such as triatomine bugs, ticks, and mosquitoes, are included in this publication.
*Please note that this CD-ROM covers species common in the United States only.
You can order Pictorial Keys: Arthropods, Reptiles, Birds and Mammals of Public Health Significance free of charge through the DPDx website. Please contact us and include your name and COMPLETE mailing address in the email. Orders may also be placed via mail to the address listed at the bottom of the page.
