The authors present a detailed review and recent study findings and a commentary on the epidemiology of highland malaria, biology of Plasmodium species and vector Anopheles mosquitoes, and environmental factors. Written by experts with several years experience in parasitology, the book will be invaluable to undergraduate and postgraduate students in medical parasitology and entomology, and professionals in public health, biomedical scientists and medical laboratory technologists.
