About this book

This volume brings together a range of articles from scientists from different fields of research and/or disease control, but with a common interest in studying the biology of a variety of parasitic (in its broadest sense) diseases.

The outstanding chapters cover a wide range of systems, exemplified by a broad spectrum of micro-and macroparasites, impacting humans, domestic and wild animals, and plants. It illustrates the importance of evolutionary considerations and concepts, both as thinking tools for qualitative understanding or as guiding tools for decision making in major control programmes.
