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.

The first edition of this book, published in by the University of Queensland Press, established itself as the main introductory textbook on marine parasitology. 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 other 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. As editor of Marine Parasitology he has assembled contributions by 75 scientists from around the world, all leaders in their fields. The first edition of this book (published in ) established itself as the main introductory textbook on marine parasitology, providing an overview of the types of marine parasites (Protozoa and Metazoa (Mesozoa, Porifera, Cnidaria, Ctenophora, Turbellaria, Trematoda, Monogenea, Cestoda, CAB INTERNATIONAL, Wallingford, UKCited by:   The ecology and importance of marine parasites are discussed in the second part of the book, where contributions investigate behavioural and ecological aspects of parasitism and discuss the evolution and zoogeography 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.

Important ecological aspects of marine parasites are discussed. Whereas effects of parasites on host individuals sometimes leading to death are known from many groups of parasites, effects on host populations have been studied much by: 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 pollution, translocations of hosts and parasites, and on the effects of parasites on the aquaculture of marine fish, molluscs and crustacea. The first part provides a general introduction, presenting basic information on: parasitology, ecology of the marine environment, history and methods of fisheries and aquaculture, as well as the ecology of marine fish and cephalopods and the impact of parasites on : Springer International Publishing.
