About this book

Tree construction, character-mapping, tree-based evolutionary interpretation, and other developments in molecular and morphological phylogenetics have had a profound influence and have shed new light on the very nature of host-parasite relations and their coevolution. Unified by the use of phylogenies, this book tackles a wide variety of parasite-specific biological problems across a diverse range of taxa.

...indispensable source for students, teachers, and research workers. ANNALS OF TROPICAL MEDICINE AND PARASITOLOGY
