About this book

Presents fifty easy-to-follow laboratory exercises for student practical (lab) classes. All the exercises are tried and tested by the authors and are used in a wide variety of university undergraduate teaching departments. They range from relatively simple observational exercises, using local materials and requiring little in the way of equipment, to more technically demanding experiments in physiology and molecular parasitology.

The book is an excellent stimulation for lecturers to include such parasitological exercises into their courses.
- Zoologischer Anzeiger

"... an extremely useful aid."
-' Oleg Ditrich, Folia Parasitologica

"Edited by experienced teacher/researchers, 'Practical Exercises in Parasitology' seems to have thought of everything ... the degree of detail and ancillary information is exceptional ..."
- Phil Whitfield, Journal of Parasitology

"... very useful for undergraduate students to illustrate many of the basic principles of parasitology."
- Linda Basson, African Zoology
