Description

Parasitic Protozoa, Volume IV: Babesia, Theileria, Myxosporida, Microsporida, Bartonellaceae, Anaplasmataceae, Ehrlichia, and Pneumocystis covers a wide range of parasites that produce disease in man and animals. This volume contains 10 chapters; each chapter tackles specific parasitic protozoa species. The first two chapters deal with the classification, morphology, life cycle, host-parasite relationship, and diagnosis of Babesia parasite, with a special emphasis on their occurrence in human and in wild and laboratory animals. The remaining chapters discuss the biological, biochemical, genetic, metabolic, and epidemiological aspects of other parasite species, including Theileria, Myxosporida, Microsporida, Bartonella, Grahamella, Aegyptianella, Eperythrozoon, Haemobartonella, Ehrlichiae, and Pneumocystis.
This book is of great value to protozoologists, microbiologists, physicians, veterinarians, and research scientists who are interested in diseases produced by the parasites in man and livestock.
