From the reviews:
"In this welcome reference for practitioners in the fields of parasitology, ecology, wildlife biology, and evolution, 52 contributors from 15 nations have compiled 28 chapters summarizing up-to-date research results in logical sequence. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above." (H. N. Cunningham, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (9), May, 2007)
"Parasitic infections of small mammals are extremely common, and it is the goal of Micromammals and Macroparasites. ... this volume offers an excellent starting place for future research. ... Students and senior researchers ... can greatly benefit from having a copy of Micromammals and Macroparasites on their bookshelf: it is a vital reference for anyone interested in studying ecological and evolutionary interactions between mammals and their parasites." (Jessica E. Light, Journal of Mammal evolution, Vol. 16, 2009)
