From Our Editors

Parasites can lead to all sorts of deadly infections in some organisms - but can have remarkably beneficial effects when interacting with others. The challenge facing modern science is to determine what precise effect parasites can have on human and animal physiology... before they do significant damage. In Advances in Parasitology, Volume 42, John R. Baker, Ralph Muller and David Rollinson compile reviews that will help students understand the abilities of a variety of parasites, including scabies, typanosomiasis, and more.
