By Alan Gunn, Sarah J. Pitt
Highly detailed textbook on parasites and parasite relationships
The fully revised edition of Parasitology: An Integrated Approach holds true to its engaging and easy-to-read approach. It comprehensively covers the complex and dynamic interaction between the parasite and its host ranging from invertebrates to vertebrates. Following an integrated approach, the authors explain how the study of parasites requires an understanding of biological concepts such as growth and reproduction, molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology, and pathology. In this second edition, they further address parasites and parasite relationships in the grand scheme of global changes and their impact.
This textbook also reviews the often-neglected positive aspects of parasite infections and how humans have used parasites for their own advantage.
