Human Parasitology emphasizes the medical aspects of the topic, while incorporating functional morphology, physiology, biochemistry, and immunology to enhance appreciation of the diverse implications of parasitism. Bridging the gap between classical clinical parasitology texts and traditional encyclopaedic treatises, Human Parasitology appeals to students interested not only in the medical aspects of Parasitology but also to those who require a solid foundation in the biology of parasites. Features expanded coverage of the evolution of parasitism and an extensive update to immunology of parasite-host interactions Includes the latest molecular finding about mosquitoes, ticks and other arthropods as vectors Offers an enhanced art program featuring life cycle illustrations and additional SEM and TEM micrographs New "Host Immune Response" section for each organism
