Recent advances in parasitological research have resulted in new, promising insights in the fight of parasite versus host. The "Encyclopedic Reference of Parasitology", which is the second edition of "Parasitology in Focus", gives a comprehensive review of the facts and trends in veterinarian and human parasitology. In addition to the authors of the first edition, several internationally renowned specialists have been added.
The book is now an Encyclopedic Reference, with all keywords and terms arranged alphabetically in the form of standardised entries. This enables information to be accessed more directly and much faster.
