This well-organized book discusses the morphology and life cycle of human parasites, as well as the mode of transmission, incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of parasitic diseases. It also explains the concept of zoonotic diseases, adaptive features and disease management in light of recent studies. The book emphasizes the evolutionary and eco-physical aspects of human parasites and shows how parasitic infection spreads today. The book is intended as a text for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Zoology and Life Sciences. In addition, it would also be highly valuable for public health workers and health professionals. KEY FEATURES : Explains the life cycle of each parasite with the help of diagrams. Deals with newly discovered parasites such as Cryptosporidium parvum and Cyclospora cayetanensis. Discusses the emerging food-borne, water-borne and vector-borne diseases. Contains a glossary of important terms related to human parasitology.

Inhaltsangabe: The book, in its Second Edition, has been thoroughly revised considering the feedback received from the readers. The text has been simplified. New information has been added, and at the same time, extra details have been deleted to make the book concise. The new edition introduces a chapter on Medically Important Snails (Chapter 9). We, the human are the host of many parasites, which cause major public health problems, untold suffering and death. Thus, three major groups of parasites-protozoa (flagellates, amoebas, and malarial parasites), helminthes (flukes, tapeworms, and roundworms), and arthropods (insects and arachnids) have been discussed with suitable illustrations. Morphology, lifecycle, mode of transmission, incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, and prevention of medically important parasites have been discussed in light of recent researches. In addition, the chapters, namely, the Evolutionary Aspects of Hosts and Parasites and Present Trends of Parasitic Importance add further value to the book. The book has been written for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Zoology and other Life Sciences disciplines. In addition, the medical students, public health workers and health professionals also find this text useful. Key Features:* Diagrammatical presentation of life cycle of parasites.* Suitably illustrated text.* Discusses the food-borne, water-borne and vector-borne parasitic diseases.* Contains glossary of important terms.
