The National Animal Parasite Laboratory of the U.S. Department of Agriculture has begun a series of Special Publications as part of the Index-Catalogue of Medical and Veterinary Zoology. These will be sent as a matter of course to the Index-Catalogue's regular mailing list, and to other interested scientists upon request.
Special Publication No. 1, a Checklist of the Internal and External Parasites of Deer, Odocoileus hemionus and O. virginianus, in the United States and Canada, by Martha L. Walker and the late Willard W. Becklund, appeared in 1970, and is now available.
Special Publication No. 2, a comprehensive, subject-indexed bibliography on Chagas' Disease is being prepared under the direction of Dr. Louis Olivier, in collaboration with the Pan American Health Organization, and should be ready for distribution in 1971.
Special Publication No. 3, Ticks and Tick-Borne Diseases, is being compiled under the direction of Dr. George Anastos and Miss Mildred A. Doss of the University of Maryland and will probably be published in 1973.
