Synopsis: Parasitology: An Integrated Approach, provides a concise, student-friendly account of parasites and parasite relationships that is supported by case studies and suggestions for student projects. The book focuses strongly on parasite interactions with other pathogens and in particular parasite-HIV interactions, as well as looking at how host behaviour contributes to the spread of infections. There is a consideration of the positive aspects of parasite infections, how humans have used parasites for their own advantage and also how parasite infections affect the welfare of captive and domestic animals. The emphasis of Parasitology is on recent research throughout and each chapter ends with a brief discussion of future developments. This text is not simply an updated version of typical parastitology books but takes an integrated approach and explains how the study of parasites requires an understanding of a wide range of other topics from molecular biology and immunology to the interactions of parasites with both their hosts and other pathogens.

From the Back Cover: Parasitology is a concise, student-friendly account of parasites and parasitic relationships with a strong emphasis throughout on parasite interactions with other pathogens as well as looking at how host behaviour contributes to the spread and control of infections.
The effects of parasitic infections are influenced by a range of host factors such as genetic constitution, immune status, and behaviour and this text takes an integrated approach to provide a full understanding of a wide range of topics from molecular biology and immunology to social, religious and cultural factors. Emphasis is also given to diagnostic techniques, from light microscopy to advanced molecular biology, and to treatment and control - highlighting recent advances in medicine, genomics and economics.

  • A concise, clearly-written integrated introduction to the study of parasites.
  • Includes self-assessment quizzes, case studies and suggestions for student projects.
  • Clearly set out with sections of full colour illustrations.
  • An emphasis on recent research throughout.
  • Companion website with additional illustrations, quizzes and project work.(URL to be added)

Students of biology, zoology, agriculture, animal welfare, biomedical sciences, medicine and veterinary science will appreciate this clear and accessible introduction.
