Human Parasitologyemphasizes the medical aspects of the topic, while incorporating functional morphology, physiology, biochemistry, and immunology to enhance appreciation of the diverse implications of parasitism. Bridging the gap between classical clinical parasitology texts and traditional encyclopaedic treatises, Human Parasitologyappeals to students interested not only in the medical aspects of Parasitology but also to those who require a solid foundation in the biology of parasites.
