A parasitology text for biology and/or zoology students at the undergraduate level. Emphasizes principles with related information on the biology, physiology, morphology, and ecology of the major parasites of humans and domestic animals. This is not a diagnostic manual for medical students.


Designed for upper division courses in general parasitology. The fifth edition with new coauthor Roberts (U. of Nebraska-Lincoln) continues to elucidate principles, illustrated with primary sections on the biology, physiology, morphology, and ecology of human and domestic animal parasites. Revised and rewritten chapters reflect recent findings in Cytokine function, opportunistic parasite infections in immunocompromised persons, malaria and its treatment, and pathogenesis. Annotation c.
