Desert locust plagues

, : Desert locust plagues. Endeavour (Cambridge) 19(3): 118-124

Some 3000 years ago the prophet Joel listed four great plagues afflicting his people: the locust, the cankerworm, the caterpillar and the palmerworm. Despite great advances in both chemical and biological methods of control, the Desert Locust still periodically wreaks havoc over large areas. Apart from the intrinsic difficulty of the problem, various constraints have been imposed. For example, insecticides that have proved very effective in the past are no longer environmentally acceptable. For economic reasons, government action is usually delayed until infestation has already reached plague proportions.

We describe two families in which the diagnosis of beta-thalassaemia intermedia was delayed because one of the parents. an obligatory het...
