Some recent publications by Asia Pacific vector colleagues…

We have received notice of a batch of publications that have emerged over the past year from a group of Asia Pacific vector control entomologists, and would like to share the titles in case you have not picked up on them from Journal Content searches…see below. Apologies if we appear to be selective, we just happened to receive notification of these particular ones from a reader. Happy reading!
