9780521664479: Parasitism: The Diversity and Ecology of Animal Parasites

Nearly all living organisms are exploited by some sort of parasite. But what are parasites? How many different types are there? What exactly is parasitism? In this undergraduate textbook parasitism is described as an ecological relationship. Ecology implies the study of the interaction between organisms and their environments and the fact that parasites' hosts are alive makes this concept even more exciting, combining traditionally disparate disciplines such as immunology and physiology with ecology and epidemiology! All the major groups of animal parasites are described, who they are, how they live, their biogeography, evolution, the influence they exert on their hosts' populations, their immunological, pathological, and biochemical implications. Written in an accessible style, the subject matter is brought to life with numerous illustrations and textboxes containing anecdotal, interesting, and supplementary material. Essential for all undergraduate students studying parasitology, Parasitism: The Diversity and Ecology of Animal Parasites will also be useful reading for graduates and researchers in zoology and ecology.

Book Description:

Parasitism: The Diversity and Ecology of Animal Parasites is the first comprehensive parasitology textbook to explain parasitism from an ecological standpoint. The relationship of the parasite to its environment is stressed. The fact that this environment is often alive makes this viewpoint even more fascinating. All of the major groups of animal parasites are examined, but also their biogeography, communities, evolution, and the way they influence the populations of their hosts. The immunological, pathological and biochemical implications of parasites are also discussed.
