Advances in Parasitology, Volume 100, the latest in a series first published in 1963, contains comprehensive and up-to-date reviews on all areas of interest in contemporary parasitology. The series includes medical studies of parasites of major influence, along with reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy, and life history, which help to shape current thinking and applications. This new release includes sections on Human Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases: Heading Towards 2050, Environmental aspects, Structural and Physical Properties of Schistosome Eggs, and Interventions against parasitic diseases to safeguard childhood development.
- Informs and updates on all the latest developments in the field of parasitology
- Includes medical studies of parasites of major influence, such as Plasmodium Falciparum and Trypanosomes
- Contains contributions from leading authorities and industry experts
- Features reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy and life history, which help to shape current thinking and applications

Professor David Rollinson is a Merit Research Scientist at the Natural History Museum in London, where he leads a research team in the Wolfson Wellcome Biomedical Laboratories and directs the WHO Collaborating Centre for schistosomiasis. He has had a long fascination with parasites and the diseases that they cause, this has involved him in many overseas projects especially in Africa. He is on the WHO Expert Advisory Panel of parasitic diseases, the editor of Advances in Parasitology and a former President of the World Federation of Parasitologists. His research group uses a multidisciplinary approach, which combines detailed molecular studies in the laboratory with ongoing collaborative studies in endemic areas of disease, to explore the intriguing world of parasites in order to help control and eliminate parasitic diseases.
