Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

“This excellent reference on parasitic zoonoses would make a nice addition to the libraries of veterinarians and public health workers as well as students, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. … The audience includes those involved in animal and public health including veterinarians, parasitologists, medical doctors, public health officials, and students. … This is a well-written book that presents accurate information with appropriate references to the current literature. A number of diagrams make it easy to following the parasite’s lifecycle.” (Adam Stern, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2013)
