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.

I work with parasites and this book is excellent to reference to. It is easy to get lost in the books great use of parasite descriptions and infections. Great illustrations for modes of transmission as well.

Great read, lots of information. I needed the 9th edition for a course but the 8th is still very relevant and follows closely to my course. Great buy and interested. Exactly what I wanted
