The cestodes, or tapeworms, are a group of parasitic worms many species of which cause serious, often fatal, diseases in man and domestic animals throughout the world. This book is an updated and expanded version of Professor Smyth's The Physiology of Cestodes (1969).
Originally published in 1989.
...in the experienced hands of Smyth and McManus, the molecular biology and biochemistry of cestodes have been synthesized into meaningful and almost beautiful explanations of the basis of life of these parasites. I recommend this small volume to all biologists with even a passing interest in this group of highly adapted metazoans. The Quarterly Review of Biology "...a compilation of information that has been reviewed insightfully with regard to its application to studies in the fields of enzymology, membrane transport and cellular differentiation, as well as parasitology."
