Moore has managed to capture the spirit of why she does what she does, the magic of discovery in a virtually unknown world ... All of this is done in a comfortable, conversational writing style and with a perfect mix of ilustrations that does not in any way detract from the scholarly nature of the text. Moore is not only very good at what she does, she is also very good at explaining it ... this book is going to inspire students to take up the challenge in the nextgeneration. BioScience A gripping account of the sometimes spectacular behavioural ( and morphological) alterations caused by parasites ...
