Research workers, instructors, and students have long expressed the need for a comprehensive reference book dealing with fish pathology. Now, with these published proceedings of the first international conference ever held on comparative pathology, all in the field--fisheries biologists, comparative microbiologists, veterinary scientists, hygienists, parasitologists, toxicologists, and comparative pathologists--at last have a dependable and thorough reference, the first in the English language devoted primarily to the lesions of disease in fish. Following an introductory chapter on comparative fish histology, the volume's 38 specific chapters are grouped under six major headings: specific diseases; diseases of a species; lesions of organ systems; chemical and physical agents of disease; nutritional disease; and neoplasia. More than 450 illustrations, including many photomicrographic enlargements, elucidate the text.
Intracellular Parasitic Protozoa introduces the basic structure and classification of intracellular parasitic protozoa and the concept of parasitism. This book starts by discussing the concept of parasitism and the taxonomic background of various intracellular protozoan organisms. This is followed by a description of the relationships between intracellular protozoan and their host cells. Then, this book discusses the ultrastructure of cells and organisms, emphasizing cell morphology that serves as the primary basis of generalizations of the host cell-parasite relationships. It also presents the intracellular protozoa in several groups according to their probable taxonomic relationships and more obvious morphological similarities. Finally, this text describes protozoan fine structure, along with a brief discussion of their biological aspects. This book is ideal for researchers, teachers, and students who wish to gain more knowledge in parasitism caused by intracellular protozoa.
