About this book

Flatworms are an extremely widely studied group of organisms reflecting their diverse forms, widespread distribution and highly specialized life history strategies. Written and edited by internationally recognised experts, this is a much needed volume linking, in a phylogenetic context, all species of flatworms whether free-living or parasitic.

A book of this scope and calibre is invaluable to researchers working in this field. I highly recommend this book be published and look forward to seeing it.' - Robin Overstreet, University of Southern Mississippi, USA. This is a very welcome volume. The editors and authors are all the acknowledged authorities in their subjects.' - Hugh Jones, University of Manchester, UK It fills a gap in the literature.' - C. Combes, Centre de Biologie et Ecologie, Perpignan, France
