About this book

The articles cover various aspects of the snail-parasite relationship, including ecology, parasite transmission, parasite interactions, evolutionary biology, molecular systematics and snail defense systems. The book emphasises the topical nature of this important area of parasite biology; for example genome and post-genomic studies, such as the schistosome genome project, are set to revolutionise parasite biology by unravelling molluscan genomes.
