Grading: lecture: 200 points; lab: 100 points
 
Lecture: midterm=70 points; final (cumulative)=130 points (equals 200 points)
 
Laboratory: the laboratory work (100 points) may involve some quizzes, and other work
 
 
 
Note on reading: The text is the latest edition of Service’s “Medical Entomology.” The chapter listings on the schedule are from the first edition, and may differ in your schedule But I know you can work it out.
 
 
W students: I will give you a separate schedule for the W sessions. You most realize that your credit, based on your writing, will be 25% of your grade; but that you must pass the W to get any credit in the entire course. If you are a W students and fail the W, you’ll get an F in the course. This has never happened in the past, and before I retire it had better not happen in the future.

==RECENT HANDOUTS==
 
=== MYIASIS===
 
 
I. Classifications<br/>
 
 
A. accidental—eggs accidentally eaten; larvae hatch and may develop in gut<br/>
 
-housefly, Drosophila (common fruit fly), various others<br/>
 
-quite common in humans, others; usually no problems <br/>
 
B. facultative—maggots also can develop in carrion, sometimes in feces, or in
 
wounds<br/>
 
--three kinds<br/>
 
1. primary—female causes the wound, or is attracted to
 
very small wounds (slight cut, etc.); can also use carrion, feces<br/>
 
2. secondary—once entry established by something else
 
(something else causes a cut), eggs laid<br/>
 
3. tertiary—only at late stages, when vertebrate host nearly
 
dead<br/>
 
C. obligatory—maggots must develop in living host
 
three kinds, as above<br/>
 
 
II. Where in host<br/>
 
A. dermal or subdermal <br/>
 
B. enteric (in gut)<br/>
 
C. nasopharyngeal (in nose, sinuses)<br/>
 
D.  and so on.<br/>
