About this book

The trematodes are parasitic flatworms of great medical and veterinary importance. The Biology and Evolution of Trematodes provides information on all characteristics of trematode organisation and biology from an evolutionary standpoint. Possible scenarios of early stages of life formation are discussed as well as a consideration of further evolution in different taxa and ecological groups of trematodes.
