This introductory undergraduate textbook provides a concise, clear and affordable overview of parasite biology for students and non-specialists, to equip them for approaching more technical and detailed literature. Using examples from all groups of animal parasites, the text considers the various stages of a parasite's life cycle from finding hosts to surviving within the host. The significance of damage caused by parasites and approaches to control are discussed, giving the book a well-rounded approach for those new to the subject or revising key points. A key feature of the book is its comparative rather than systematic approach. Suitable for all introductory parasite courses in biology, zoology and human and veterinary medicine.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... the style is exemplary and there are many felicitous phrases and comparisons which help to lighten the text and make the whole thing a delight to read ... This book certainly fulfils admirably its primary function of providing an introductory undergraduate textbook and gives a more comprehensive and clearer exposition of almost all aspects of animal parasitology than many other considerably more expensive hardback textbooks.' Biologist
'This is a straightforwardly written textbook which successfully introduces the undergraduate and the nonspecialist to the more arcane literature. It presents the material clearly, interestingly and with a typically British sense of humour, all of it which makes it a pleasure to read.' Lorenzo Savioli, Bulletin of the World Health Organization
'This book is a wonderful introduction to the field of parasitology.' International Journal for Parasitology
'... a well-rounded view of parasitology.' BIOSIS
