This publication represents a renewal of the Memoir Series of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. It is made up of three separate papers on Anopheles and malaria studies in different areas of the Near East. These papers are: “Anopheline Surveys in Syria and Lebanon” by H. S. Leeson; “Anophelism and Malaria in Transjordan and in the Neighboring Parts of Palestine and Syria” by W. H. R. Lumsden and J. Yofe; and “The Anopheline Mosquitoes of Iraq and North Persia” by T. T. Macan.
The data on which these studies are based are compilations of the records of the several Malaria Field Laboratories of the Royal Army Medical Corps which were charged with the responsibility of delineating the military hazards of malaria in these regions during the period 1941 through 1943. Each of the authors emphasizes the limitations placed on the scope of his investigations by military necessities.
