Description

Reviews

This is the first in a series of volumes dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of reptilian parasites and is the first attempt to summarize all contemporary knowledge about protozoa in one place. Information is presented in annotated outline form for quick reference. Chapters are divided by phyla and include descriptions of the most recently recognized parasitic protozoa of reptiles; their hosts, host locations, and modes of transmission are given, as well as their life cycles when known. The text also includes a chapter on laboratory procedures for the herpetoculturist and a bibliography of approximately 250 references.

"… comprehensive book for anyone who wants to increase his understanding of the biology of this group of organisms and the infections they cause in reptiles...will become fundamental... will be undoubtedly appreciated...by parasitologists, veterinarians, herpetologists, and other specialists interested in this field." -- Bretislav Koudela and David Modry, Folia Parisitologica.

"The information contained in the appendices is also very helpful as are the glossary (not everyone who keeps reptiles is a professional) and the large number of references. This little book should be a welcome addition to the library of anyone who cares for reptiles." -- L.H.S. Van Mierop, M.D., University of Florida, October 1994.

"In this first book the authors have done an admirable job of presenting the most prevalent reptile-invasive genera of protozoa, both pathogenic and harmless. Do not overlook this book!...the complete set will be a standard in the field for many years to come." -- Manny Rubio, Bulletin Chicago Herpetological Society, 30(1):12, 1995.

"… serious retailers and hobbyists will find this book to be the most complete guide to reptile parasites..." -- Erica Ramus, Reptile & Amphibian Magazine, March 1997.

"Overall, the volume was in an easy-to-read format with capacity for quick reference between protozoal classifications." -- Kathryn C. Gamble, D.V.M., Dallas Zoo and Aquarium, Dallas, Texas.

"This publication is presented in an intelligible manner, and will obviously be a functional part of any herpetoculturist's library." -- Diane Calloway, Animal Keepers' Forum.
