This new edition is the ideal general parasitology text for your junior- and senior-level biology or zoology majors. Designed for a one-semester course, Foundations of Parasitology emphasizes principles, with related information about biology, physiology, morphology, and ecology of the major parasites of humans and domestic animals. This balanced text presents the major phyla of parasites within a biological, ecological, and evolutionary framework.
Updates include the addition of current information covering research and taxonomy; increased ecology and evolution coverage; updated coverage of immunology and pathology; improved phylogenetics information; and an increase in life-cycle illustrations.
Excellent visuals program features numerous line drawings and photomicrographs that illustrate important morphological detail.
Effective pedagogical aids include chapter-opening quotations, boldface terms, classification lists, updated end-of-chapter references, suggested readings, and glossary.
