Media reviews

... a fascinating book ... it succeeds quite well in bringing together a rather diverse set of approaches that are not often considered the business of 'mainstream' microbiology. It will appeal to final year microbiology undergraduates and postgraduates as well as senior researchers in bioarchaeology. MicroBiology Today ... provocative and informative. The Lancet This is a very nicely produced book that contains much that is likely to be of interest to readers of the Transactions and the editors are to be congratulated on their initiative in producing a book that can truly be said to be original and for drawing so much disparate information together. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene This publication is of importance for anybody with an interest in these pathogens. European Journal of Protistology.
