About this book

Summarizes the work carried out over more than a hundred years of research on bird haemosporidians. For a long time, bird blood parasites served as important models in studying human diseases, including malaria. Although largely replaced as models of human disease, the wealth of data and research remained. As ecologists and evolutionary biologists sought models to illustrate their theories, avian haemotozoa provided some of the best existing databases.
