9780340212592: Introduction to Animal Parasitology (Biological science texts)

The third edition of this basic textbook in parasitology has been entirely rewritten, incorporating the spectacular advances made in biological sciences within recent years. The author presents students and research workers with a broad multi-disciplined approach to the morphology, ultrastructure, speciation, life cycles, biochemistry, in vitro culture and immunology of parasites. Special attention is paid to those species used as models for teaching and research as well as the major human and animal parasites. The author introduces the basics of the subject for new students as well as bringing in more advanced topics of interest to senior students and researchers. The text is illustrated with a large number of figures, tables and up-to-date reference lists. The book will appeal to all students with an interest in parasitology as well as being of interest to research workers in the field.

Review:

."..an impressive revision that will well serve a wide variety of students in the basic and applied biological sciences....With this new material and the clean, attractive presentation (both graphically and in prose) of the third edition, a new generation of students will be lured to the fascinating topic of parasitism." Catherine A. Toft, Quarterly Review of Biology

"The author has written the book for new students in the field of animal parasitology but advanced topics, such as the application of isoelectric focusing and antigenic analysis to develop the concept of species, are of interest to senior students and researchers. The book is easy to read and the writing is interesting...." Andr^D'e Morin, CSM Newsletter

"It may be useful for an upper division course in parasitology or helminthology. The book would be a valuable resource for graduate students and instructors of parasitology." Tim Ruhnke, The Quarterly Review of Biology
