      This heavily illustrated text teaches parasitology from a biological perspective. It combines classical descriptive biology of parasites with modern cell and molecular biology approaches, and also addresses parasite evolution and ecology. Parasites found in mammals, non-mammalian vertebrates, and invertebrates are systematically treated, incorporating the latest knowledge about their cell and Author: Richard Lucius. Parasites of humans. Although humanity has succeeded in eradicating only one human parasite – the smallpox virus (Variola spp) – countless attempts to control other parasites have been made, some highly successful (Center for Global Development ).International efforts to eradicate polio (Aylward and Tangermann ) and guinea worm (Al-Awadi et al. ) are nearing by:

    Parasitism: The Diversity and Ecology of Animal Parasites, 2nd Edition. by Timothy M. Goater, Cameron P. Goater, Gerald W. Esch December Reflecting the enormous advances made in the field over the past ten years, this text synthesizes the latest developments in the ecology and evolution of animal parasites against a backdrop of parallel advances in parasite systematics, biodiversity and. He has written numerous papers and book chapters: his Evolutionary Ecology of Parasites has been cited at least times; his co-written Parasites in food webs: the ultimate missing links has been cited over times; his Parasite Biodiversity and four other works have each been cited over times; 12 other works have been cited over

    Next he discusses genetic interactions between hosts and parasites, and he ends with a section on the community ecology of parasites and their role in the evolution of their hosts.

Evolutionary Ecology of Parasites presents an evolutionary framework for the study of parasite biology, combining theory with empirical examples for a broader understanding of why parasites are as they are and do what they do. An up-to-date synthesis of the field, the book is an ideal teaching tool for advanced courses on the by: The chapters covering ecological, zoogeographical and economic aspects have also been significantly changed.

Aimed particularly at students and research workers in parasitology, the book will also be of interest to ecologists, biologists concerned with zoogeographical problems, and to Cited by: Parasites evolve under selective pressures which are different from those acting on free-living organisms.

The aim of this textbook is to present these pressures and to show how they have shaped the ecology of parasites over evolutionary time.

He was awarded the Hutton Medal from the Royal Society of New Zealand Price: $ "Ecology of Parasites" was written as an introducion for sixth form and first year biology students. It includes chapters on the problem of definition of parasitism, the ecological niche, transmission, host-parasite relationships, distribution and disease.

Brief appendices deal with practical aspects of parasitology. The first 2 chapters are introductory but they may fail to prepare the Cited by: chapter in his pioneering ecology book to parasitism his conclusion was that the re- semblances between predators and parasites are more important than the differences.

Parasites evolve under selective pressures which are different from those acting on free-living organisms. The aim of this textbook is to present these pressures and to show how they have shaped. The book combines a comprehensive and balanced presentation of parasite biodiversity with an insightful treatment of the various aspects of the ecology of host/parasite interactions.
