This atlas is intended as an aid to students enrolled in a laboratory course in parasitology. Specimens that are typically studied in such a course have been photographed with a digital camera and arranged in plates. A total of 1,373 parasite images are included on 135 plates. A brief explanation of each plate is on the facing page, emphasizing major characteristics of the parasite’s structure, life cycle, and medical significance. Unlike previous laser- or solid ink-printed editions, the 8th edition has been commercially offset printed on 128 gsm glossy art paper with wire-o binding. A copy of the CD, “Electronic Atlas of Parasitology” is included with the printed atlas. All orders are shipped within 2 business days by USPS Priority Mail (usually 2-3 day arrival).
