Myxozoan Evolution, Ecology and Development, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 2015

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Okamura Beth, Gruhl Alexander, Bartholomew Jerri L.

Couverture de l’ouvrage Myxozoan Evolution, Ecology and Development

This book provides an up-to-date review of the biology of myxozoans, which represent a divergent clade of endoparasitic cnidarians. Myxozoans are of fundamental interest in understanding how early diverging metazoans have adopted parasitic lifestyles, and are also of considerable economic and ecological concern as endoparasites of fish. Synthesizing recent research, the chapters explore issues such as myxozoan origins; evolutionary trends and diversification; development and life cycles; interactions with hosts; immunology; disease ecology; the impacts of climate change on disease; risk assessment; and disease mitigation. Furthermore, key areas for future research are identified. This comprehensive work will appeal to a wide readership, from invertebrate zoologists, evolutionary biologists and developmental biologists to ecologists and parasitologists. It will also be of great practical interest to fisheries and conservation biologists.
