Parasitology: the biology of animal parasites


, : Parasitology: the biology of animal parasites. Parasitology: the biology of animal parasites (5th Ed.): viii + 522

This comprehensive textbook is designed for undergraduates taking a first course in parasitology but also provides extra detail for students with more specialized interests. The introduction, which outlines elementary terms and principles, is accompanied by brief reviews on physiology, immunology and genetics. The bulk of the text (374 pp.) surveys the groups of parasitic animals with sections on protozoans, platyhelminths, acanthocephalans, nematodes, arthropods and miscellaneous phyla.

When two random-dot patterns moving in different directions are superimposed, motion appears coherent or transparent depending on the directional difference. In addition, when a pattern is surrounded by another pattern that is moving, the perceive...
