Summary:
"Parasitic flatworms are the cause of a number of major diseases of medical and veterinary significance. Much recent research has focused on molecular biology and genomics. This book aims to review advances in our understanding of these and related topics such as flatworm biochemistry, immunology and physiology. Where appropriate comparisons are made between different parasitic flatworms and between parasitic and  Read more...
