About this book

Resulting from a Royal Society discussion meeting, this volume presents a short review of the topic of parasite-host co-evolution. Current thinking on evolution in parasites, viruses and other pathogens is discussed.

Reviews

This book stands as an excellent guide to current theory on host-parasite co-evolution and as such may serve as a 'ready-made' framework for an advanced undergraduate or graduate seminar in this topic. - Parasitology Today
