Medical Entomology and Parasitology
by Kathleen Crea, MLS, 6th Year, AHIP
Information & Education Services Librarian

Research on public health could be viewed as the study of how humans co-exist (or not) in a world filled with a vast array of hostile bugs, pests and germs. Better computing technologies has allowed the wired user to view online digital images or real-time videos of non-human organisms which a decade ago would have been unimaginable (or labeled as futuristic science fiction). Below are listed some of the best free websites concerned with "bugs' lives"... and their effects on human health.
