About this book

This is the third and final volume of the Keys to the Trematoda, a series on the systematics and identification of the Class Trematoda. It covers five superfamilies within the Order Plagiorchiida and the family Didymozoidae, with keys for their identification at the family, subfamily and generic levels. It also includes a key to all digenean superfamilies, including those treated in detail in volumes one and two. Previous volumes dealt with the Subclass Aspidogastrea and Order Strigeida as well as the Order Echinostomida and the first two plagiorchiidan superfamilies.

Keys to the Trematoda will become the standard reference on the group for many years. Given the infrequency of appearance of such large works, this is likely to remain the definitive work for the first half of this century and to find a place on book-shelves all over the planet. David Blair, School of Tropical Biology, Australia "...we consider the Keys to represent a valuable contribution to taxonomic research on trematodes...Keys to the Trematoda will undoubtedly represent an indispensable source of basic information about the systematics of these helminths." Scholz & Horak, Folia Parasitologica, 2003 "The editors and the authors have succeeded in preparing a book which is valuable to experts, practising Parasitologists and beginners, and they should be congratulated on their great success" Zdzislaw Swiderski & Boyko B. Georgiev Acta Parasitologica, 2005, 50(4)"
