Identification of protozoan parasites in animal tissues is often difficult and confusing. The purpose of this atlas is to create a single reference containing illustrations of the numerous species of protozoans and their stages as they appear within infected tissues. This atlas provides 257 color photographs of these organisms, as well as 36 color photomicrographs of fungi, prepared by techniques that best identify them. It also includes simplified life-cycle drawings as well as brief descriptions of the parasites, hosts, transmission, and pathogenesis. This second edition includes minor textual changes and profound enhancement of the color photographs. The illustrations in this atlas represent the most common stages under optimal conditions for identification. This atlas is intended as an aid for students, teachers, diagnosticians and researchers by facilitating identification of protozoan parasites of animals.
In today's global community, the new fifth edition of Ash and Orihel's Atlas of Human Parasitology is a must-have for parasitic identification. Coverage is complete, including well-recognised species of parasites as well as information on those less commonly encountered. This is the reference you'll want to have at hand when you need to view the unknown and assimilate your findings into a clinical context. Authored by two of the most widely recognised and respected educators and researchers in the field, the new fifth edition features: new imaging throughout; quick morphologic keys; clinical images of infection; important diagnostic procedures; and expanded treatment of parasite-like artefacts and pseudoparasites culled from real-world cases.
Opportunistic pathogens in the immunocompromised and immunosuppressed, exotic food, and travel to tropical regions, have all increased the number and types of rare parasites now frequently seen in practice. Identifying these organisms can be challenging. To help accurately identify them and diagnose their related diseases, Parasites in Human Tissues provides complete microanatomic descriptions of more than 70 parasites that can appear in human tissue. More than 700 diagnostic and clinical images, almost 600 in full color, illustrate anatomic and morphologic details for each organism. Parasites in Human Tissues summarizes the biology and life histories of these organisms as well as their clinical presentation and pathology. Among the etiologic agents covered are protozoa, nematoda, trematoda, cestoda, acanthocephala, pseudoparasites, pentastoma, and arthropods. Pathologists, research scientists, and anyone working in clinical and diagnostic settings will find Parasites In Human Tissues a comprehensive and useful guide to this increasingly important issue.
This book provides a guide to specialized information sources dealing with animal health pests and their management. A pest is defined as any organism which causes harm or damage, in this case to mammals, birds, fish, reptiles or amphibians. Such pests may include insects, helminths, fungi, bacteria or protozoa. Plants with toxic effects on livestock are also included, but pests, parasites or pathogens of invertebrates are not. The first part of the directory covers books and reviews on animal health, while the second half considers primary literature, database libraries and information centres, and veterinary associations.
The latest edition of this excellent guide provides the most current information on parasites encountered in veterinary medicine. Over 400 high-quality illustrations help readers identify and treat parasites of every kind. This edition contains complete revisions in the protozoa and diagnostic parasitology sections, and also includes improvements in the chapters discussing pesticides and antiprotozoals.
