The de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was a British multi-role combat aircraft with a two-man crew that served during and after the Second World War. It was one of few operational front-line aircraft of the era constructed almost entirely of wood and was nicknamed "The Wooden Wonder". The Mosquito was also known affectionately as the "Mossie" to its crews. Originally conceived as an unarmed fast bomber the Mosquito was adapted to a wide range of bombing roles. It was also used by BOAC as a fast transport to carry small high-value cargoes to, and from neutral countries through enemy controlled airspace. The book collates a variety of pamphlets and manuals on the plane that were produced throughout the war for the benefit of pilots and others associated with the aircraft.
Among the struggles of the twentieth century, the one between humans and mosquitoes may have been the most vexing, as demonstrated by the long battle to control these bloodsucking pests. As vectors of diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, encephalitis, and dengue fever, mosquitoes forced open a new chapter in the history of medical entomology. Based on extensive use of primary sources, The Mosquito Crusades traces this saga and the parallel efforts of civic groups in New Jersey's Meadowlands and along San Francisco Bay's east side to manage the dangerous mosquito population. Providing readers with a fascinating exploration of the relationship between science, technology, and public policy, Gordon Patterson's narrative begins in New Jersey with John B. Smith's effort to develop a comprehensive plan and solution for mosquito control, one that would serve as a national model. From the Reed Commission's 1900 yellow fever experiment to the first Earth Day seventy years later, Patterson provides an eye-opening account of the crusade to curtail the deadly mosquito population.

Butty and the Mosquito is the first in a series aimed at simplifying scientific concepts in biology and related subjects for youngsters. It makes learning about nature an easy task. Butty, a beautiful butterfly is made to assume the human role of learning about animals, plants, and nature in general and imparting such knowledge to children. Because Butty can move about noiselessly, it can perch anywhere without being noticed and is thus able to listen to the conversation of animals, plants, and other creations of Mother Nature. In Butty and the Mosquito, Butty brings to readers the story of mosquitoes their life cycle, their habits, their habitat (where they live) their importance to human beings, and how they can be controlled or eliminated. The book starts as a literature text before going into the biology of mosquitoes. As the young or adult reader progresses, he or she learns about mosquitoes in a more practical way. The method is different from what obtains in a normal biology class. The student absorbs more quickly because of the easy and practical presentation of facts. As much as is possible, simple words are used to aid understanding. However, where simplification would lead to loss of meaning, some more difficult terms are used. It is expected that readers will appreciate the dangers of mosquito bites and that the book will assist in the campaign to rid the world of mosquitoes, and by extension, the diseases they transmit.
