From the Preface: Over a dozen years have passed since the first edition of this textbook was published. As is to be expected, tremendous progress has been made in the study of zooparasites and the nature of parasitism. This is especially true in the case of the protozoans and helminths of medical and economic importance. Continuing the original intent, this book is meant to be a teaching tool rather than a reference volume for seasoned investigators. It is meant to supplement formal lectures, but at the same time to provide students with sufficient information as to where more detailed review articles and primary research reports can be located.

Human Parasitology, Fifth Edition emphasizes a medical perspective that also incorporates 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 encyclopedic treatises, the book will not only appeal to students interested in the medical aspects of parasitology, but also those who are interested in gaining a solid foundation in the biology of parasites. This updated edition has been fully revised to integrate the most recent molecular discoveries about mosquitoes, ticks and other arthropods as vectors, along with the most effective therapeutic regimens for each. Integrates the most recent molecular discoveries on mosquitoes, ticks and other arthropods Features expanded coverage of the evolution of parasitism and an extensive update on the immunology of parasite-host interactions Offers an enhanced art program that features lifecycle illustrations and additional SEM and TEM micrographs Provides a New Host Immune Response section for each organism Includes a special section on the impact of genomics

Georgis’ Parasitology for Veterinarians, 10th Edition provides current information on all parasites commonly encountered in veterinary medicine. Its primary focus is on parasites that infect major domestic species, such as dogs, cats, horses, pigs, and ruminants, but it also includes coverage of organisms that infect poultry, laboratory animals, and exotic species. This edition features chapters that cover arthropods, protozoans, and helminths, including their taxonomy and life cycles, as well as the clinical signs, diagnosis, and treatment of each parasite’s infection or infestation. Other chapters include vector-borne diseases, antiparasitic drugs, diagnostic parasitology, histopathologic diagnosis, and a new chapter on vaccinations. No other book on this topic is so well-respected and so thorough. It’s the only parasitology reference that provides all the information you’ll need! The most comprehensive parasitology book on the market, written specifically for veterinarians, provides complete information on all parasites commonly encountered in veterinary medicine, as well as information about minor or rare parasites. High-quality color photographs and illustrations make the process of identifying and treating parasites more accurate and efficient. Updated drug tables offer the most current information on drugs, vaccinations, and parasticides. Greek and Latin roots printed alphabetically on the inside front and back covers provide you with quick access to scientific names and terms. NEW! New chapter covering the use and development of vaccines against parasites keeps you up to date with what’s currently happening in this area. NEW! Expanded chapter on vector-borne diseases provides more in-depth detail on this topic and places more focus on bacterial parasites. NEW! New diagrams illustrating the mode of action of the different classes of antiparasitics make the antiparasitic drug chapter more understandable. NEW! Updated protozoa chapter includes newer taxonomy to ensure you have the latest information on this subject. NEW! A new table in the arthropod chapter covering diseases transmitted by different ticks provides up-to-date information about these parasites.

"Veterinary Clinical Parasitology, Eighth Edition," prepared under the auspices of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), emphasizes the morphologic identification of both internal and external parasites of domestic animals. Focusing on the tests and information most relevant to daily practice, the book describes accurate, cost-effective techniques for diagnosing parasitic infections in animals. Including clear, easy-to-find information on the distribution, life cycle, and importance of each parasite, "Veterinary Clinical Parasitology" offers more than 450 images to aid with diagnosis. The Eighth Edition includes a new chapter on immunologic and molecular diagnosis, increased coverage of ticks and new sections on identification of microfilariae and larvae in diagnostic samples. The new edition also features expanded information on quantitative egg counts, detection of anthelmintic resistance and identification of ruminant strongylid larvae. Additional improvements include many new images throughout the book, revised taxonomic information, and a new layout featuring tabs by section to improve user-friendliness. "Veterinary Clinical Parasitology" is a highly practical benchside reference invaluable to clinicians, technicians, and students. Key features Acts as a picture-matching guide to aid in identifying parasites of domestic animals Provides a practical, useful resource for learning the techniques used in diagnosing parasites Offers a new chapter on immunologic and molecular diagnosis, as well as new images and new sections throughout Redesigned for easier access to information, with a colorful page design and tabs identifying individual sections Prepared under the auspices of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP) Includes a companion website offering the images from the book electronically, available at www.wiley.com/go/zajac

The textbook 'Parasitology in Veterinary Medicine' is based on 'Lehrbuch der Parasitologie für die Tiermedizin' (3rd ed.), published in 2013 by Enke, Germany. Wageningen Academic Publishers presents a revised edition in English, suited both for basic and advanced studies and as reference book for the veterinary practice. Although focused on the European situation, the book also deals with important parasitic diseases occurring in other regions.The main part is organized by parasite groups (protozoa, helminths, arthropoda, etc.). It provides information on the parasites' biology, epidemiology, immunology, pathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis, therapy and control. Summaries allow for a quick overview.Another part is arranged according to animal species (cattle, sheep and goats, pigs, horses, dogs and cats, rabbits, poultry, bees). It contains tables listing the parasites of the organ systems and showing antiparasitic drugs. Furthermore, practical instructions on the control of parasitic diseases are given.Further chapters deal with general parasitology, zoonoses, parasites in food, diagnostic procedures, and essentials of therapy and control of parasitoses. A detailed glossary with etymological notes is intended for a better understanding of parasitological terms. The book contains numerous tables and is illustrated with 421 figures, including many instructive drawings of parasite life cycles.

Parasitology: An Integrated Approach, provides a concise, student-friendly account of parasites and parasite relationships that is supported by case studies and suggestions for student projects. The book focuses strongly on parasite interactions with other pathogens and in particular parasite-HIV interactions, as well as looking at how host behaviour contributes to the spread of infections. There is a consideration of the positive aspects of parasite infections, how humans have used parasites for their own advantage and also how parasite infections affect the welfare of captive and domestic animals. The emphasis of Parasitology is on recent research throughout and each chapter ends with a brief discussion of future developments. This text is not simply an updated version of typical parastitology books but takes an integrated approach and explains how the study of parasites requires an understanding of a wide range of other topics from molecular biology and immunology to the interactions of parasites with both their hosts and other pathogens.
