  • About the Edition

    The first edition of this book, published in 1982 by the University of Queensland Press, established itself as the main introductory textbook on marine parasitology. It provided an overview of the types of marine parasites and their hosts, hyperparasitism, adaptations, host-parasite interactions, ecological niches, geographical distribution, as well as economic and medical aspects of marine parasites. The second edition has been reviewed to take account of recent advances and includes an additional chapter on the structure of marine parasite communities. There are also new sections on pollution, translocations of hosts and parasites, and on the effects of parasites on the aquaculture of marine fish, molluscs and crustacea. The chapters covering ecological, zoogeographical and economic aspects have also been significantly changed. Aimed particularly at students and research workers in parasitology, the book will also be of interest to ecologists, biologists concerned with zoogeographical problems, and to fish and fisheries biologists.

    Biology and Ecology of Venomous Marine Scorpionfishes examines the diversity, utilization, and ways to safeguard against the world’s most dangerous fish species. It covers the biological and ecological factors that differentiate each species in the Scorpaeninae (Scorpionfish) family and its Pteroinae (Lionfish) subfamily. This book offers important anatomical and identification information.   comprises 17 chapters, eight of which are new, but with continuing emphasis on biodiversity, ecology, and evolution of animal parasites. The book has been completely revised to take account of the extensive advances and latest developments in these fields to meet the requirements of a new generation of students, whether in biology, zoology Author: John W. Lewis.

    Book Description. Written by world experts in astacology, this book covers a range of aspects of the biology and ecology of freshwater crayfish. With a strong focus on wild crayfish, the book studies the taxonomy and genetics of this interesting group of animals. Parasitology by Dr. Michele M. Klingbeil. Parasites are still an important threat to our global health and economy, and represent an important branch of infectious diseases. This note is designed to provide students of microbiology and biology with a basic understanding of classical and modern parasitology. Author (s): Dr. Michele M. Klingbeil.

    Marine Ecology Book Series Marine Ecology – A comprehensive, integrated Treatise on Life in Oceans and Coastal Waters. It is a great pleasure for Inter-Research to herewith present in the form of open access the series “Marine Ecology” published by Wiley & Sons from to Evolutionary Ecology of Parasitespresents an evolutionary framework for the study of parasite biology, combining theory with empirical examples for a broader understanding of why parasites are as they are and do what they do. An up-to-date synthesis of the field, the book is an ideal teaching tool for advanced courses on the subject.

“Overall, this book is an excellent and stimulating discussion of marine parasites and the roles they play in the sea.” (Quarterly Review of Biology) “[I]t provides a stimulating introduction to all those interested in the sea or in parasitology who are not aware of the wealth of research potential awaiting within the often bizarre and always fascinating field of the ecology of marine parasites.”Cited by: There are also new sections on pollution, translocations of hosts and parasites, and on the effect of parasites on the aquaculture of marine fish, molluscs and crustacea.

The second edition has been revised to take account of recent advances and includes an additional chapter on the structure of marine parasite communities. There are also new sections on. The book seeks to break down the ecology of marine parasites into three broad categories: ecological effects of the environment and hosts on parasites, effects of various parasites on each Ecology of marine parasites book when inhabiting the same host and finally the ecological effects that parasites have on their hosts in general.

This book appeals to a wide audience including specialists and students in marine biology, parasitology and ecology. It is also recommended as a teaching aid and a source of information on marine parasites which are still, as yet, relatively little by:   Klaus Rohde is Professor Emeritus at the University of New England, Australia, and the author of the well-known book Ecology of Marine Parasites.

In addition, 5/5(1). Parasites evolve under selective pressures which are different from those acting on free-living organisms. The aim of this textbook is to present these pressures and to show how they have shaped the ecology of parasites over evolutionary time.

Thieltges, K. Mathias Wegner Pages Rohde's work on the ecology of marine parasites has shown that most parasites live in largely non-saturated niche space, i.e., that most niches are vacant; proceeding from these findings, he concluded that equilibrium conditions in animal communities are the exception rather than the rule (discussed in detail in his book Nonequilibrium Ecology).Awards: Clarke Medal.
