It covers taxonomic identification, medical importance and bionomics of haemaphysaline ticks.Presents the taxonomy and biological description of the 42 haemaphysaline ticks which are found in the Indian subcontinentIncludes information on the ecology and biology of many of these speciesKeys provided for subgeneric and individual identification will be useful for easy identification of Indian haemaphysaline ticks
