Synopsis: This second edition provides a comprehensive review of the facts and trends in veterinarian and human parasitology, through contributions from distinguished specialists. In addition to the authorship of the first edition, several internationally renowned colleagues joined the team in order to inform a broader readership. The book is now organised in an encyclopedic arrangement of comprehensive keywords, thus speeding up the search for wanted information.
The accompanying CD-ROM includes the full texts and all illustrations from both volumes, all fully hyperlinked, and has the added advantage of allowing rapid electronic searching.


From the reviews of the second edition

"This is a two volume encyclopaedic version of a single volume textbook originally published in 1988. The stated objective ... is to provide a ‘comprehensive review of facts and trends ... in parasitology’. Both volumes are amply illustrated with figures, photographs, line drawings, graphs and tables. ... the figures are generally of a decent quality. ... The quality of the illustrations themselves is generally good and the pages are laid out cleanly and moderately clearly. ... There is a CD-ROM which replicates the book ... ." (L.H. Chappel, Parasitology, Vol. 123 (531-532), 2001)

"This is a transparent and extremely comprehensive encyclopaedic handbook on parasites in humans and animals which is mandatory for almost everybody engaged in these topics who wishes to have quick access to the necessary relevant information. The structure of the text of this book including the illustrations is extremely coherent and ... Figures, tables and references are absolutely up-to-date. ... Congratulations to the editor ... and also to all the authors involved in this exciting and valuable book project ... ." (Axel Schmidt, Chemotherapy, Vol. 47 (6), 2001)

"This completely revised second edition of Mehlhorn’s ‘Parasitology in Focus’ ... has greatly changed its appearance. Excellent schematic drawings and numerous electron micrographs illustrate well the morphology and life cycle of parasites ... . Many clearly arranged tables allow typical features to be compared. ... This encyclopaedic textbook of parasitology is an outstanding, comprehensive work that can be recommended without reservation. The new layout as a kind of extended glossary makes it very easy to quickly and competently inform oneself about a chosen topic." (R. Radek, European Journal of Protistology, Vol. 37 (3), 2001)
