The present monograph is the first one dealing in detail with all trichinelloid nematodes parasiting poikilotherm hosts (fishes, amphibians and reptiles), covering the families Trichinellidae, Capillariidae, Trichosomoididae, Cystoopsidae and Dioctowittidae. It is meant to provide basic data on all hitherto known species and to enable their exact determination. It summarises the present knowledge of the taxonomy, morphology, biology and ecology of these parasites, provides keys to identification, diagnoses of higher taxa and description and illustrations of all species parasitic in cold-blooded hosts. It also gives data on their hosts, localization, distribution and biology.
Altogether 113 trichenelloid species and subspecies belonging to 18 genera of 5 families are dealt with in this way. The host–parsite list is provided. The list of references includes about 670 papers. This publication is intended for parsitologists, biologists, veterinarians, workers in fisheries, university students. It will also be interest to ichthyologists, batrachologists and herpetologists, museum curators and those engaged in nature conservation.
