“A lively look at little bugs that are not just annoying but can be one of our deadliest foes. Willott describes the problems that arise when we attempt to manage mosquitoes, then goes on to explore the interdisciplinary and ethical quandaries our efforts create.”

Dr. Elizabeth Willott (http://research.biology.arizona.edu/mosquito/willott.html), on faculty at the University of Arizona, does interdisciplinary work in ecology and environmental ethics. She publishes in a range of professional journals and is editor of the anthology ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS: WHAT REALLY MATTERS, WHAT REALLY WORKS (Oxford Univ Press, 2002; co-edited with David Schmidtz). She has twice been a Fulbright Senior Scholar in environmental science: to Francisco Marroquin University in Guatemala (October 2004) and to Rhodes University in South Africa (Summer 2005). She is currently starting another book, on the interface of conservation biology and environmental ethics. She is currently teaching at OU as a Glidden Visiting Professor.
