This revised and updated edition provides succinct coverage of the organisms that parasitize humans. Bridging the gap between classical clinical parasitology texts and traditional encyclopedic treatises, Human Parasitology appeals to those interested not only in the medical aspects of parasitology but also those who are interested in attaining a solid foundation of parasite biology. This book combines functional morphology, physiology, biochemistry, and immunology with medical consequences to appeal to a wide variety of readers including premedical, medical technology, health and biology students, researchers, and professionals.
