Product Description: Parasites have evolved numerous complex and fascinating ways of interacting with their hosts. The subject attracts the interest of numerous biologists from the perspective
and updated edition of his influential earlier work, Robert Poulin provides an evolutionary ecologist's view of the biology of parasites. He sets forth a comprehensive synthesis of parasite evolutionary ecology
of their biology including identification, life-cycles, hostparasite relationships and ecology. It discusses approaches to studying parasitic worm infections, preference of species for particular host species
, ecology and pathogenicity of these parasites.
Es el mejor libro que he visto sobre nematodos del orden tylenchida considerando las ilustraciones y la descripcion por lo que considero
Biogeography has renewed its concepts and methods following important recent advances in phylogenetics, macroecology, and geographic information systems. In parallel, the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite
This book discusses all of the world's nearly 100 species of obligatory brood parasites--those birds that reproduce only by laying their eggs in the nests of other
scientific discoveries, ranging from immunology to ecology and from malaria and trypanosomiasis to schistosomiasis and Lyme disease. This engaging and lively introduction to discovery in parasitology
. This book examines how functional, ecological and evolutionary patterns and processes of host-parasite relationships are realized in this particular system. As such it provides an in-depth case study
that the parasite wants to happen.
Even with all of the horror stories that are told and facts that are laid out, the reader has the opportunity to see how parasites positively affect different ecological
