This volume comprehensively illustrates all major helminth parasites of veterinary importance using more than 900 spectacular color photographs of exceptional quality and clarity. No comparable atlas or publication of helminth parasites and their effect on the host animal exists. It demonstrates the life cycle stages, clinical conditions, diagnostic measures, fecal examination techniques, pathology and epidemiology relevant to helminths of domestic and companion animals. The scope and subject matter of this atlas are addressed to a broad audience interested in the helminth parasites of domestic animals, many of which are of zoonotic importance. The atlas will be an invaluable reference work in veterinary schools, medical schools, and schools of public health, at both undergraduate and graduate teaching levels. It will be of great assistance to parasitologists, animal and human healthcare personnel, and diagnostic and research personnel, in better understanding and interpreting individual parasites and their effect on the host animal.
