Format: Hardcover
This book, now the 7th edition, is known among parasitologists as the best available overview of parasitology. It covers all parasites, not just human infections, therefore it provides knowledge about parasite diversity and relationships. I am a biologist and found it valuable when moving into parasitolgy work. Highly recommended.
