This is first major revision since 1968 of this standard textbook on parasites of importance to veterinary medicine, which is designed both to serve the needs of students and as a reference book for practising veterinarians. This edition incorporates up-to-date knowledge of the morphology, physiology and biology of helminths, arthropods and protozoa affecting domesticated animals and of the pathophysiology and immunology of host responses to them. In view of the changing character of livestock husbandry and farming both in the developed and developing countries, the subject is dealt with on an international basis. The numerous additions include parasites of fish, laboratory, wild, exotic and zoo animals, the epidemiology and forecasting of parasitic diseases, and more information on pathophysiological processes, immunological aspects of parasitism and the biology of the parasites in their hosts. The section on arthropods (pp. 359-504) includes entries on the following orders: Orthoptera, Mallophaga, Anoplura (Siphunculata), Hemiptera, Coleoptera, Siphonaptera, Diptera and Acari, as well as information on pentastomids, parasitic copepods and injurious non-parasitic arthropods such as piercing, biting, stinging and urticating species.
