Acanthocephalans, or spiny-headed worms, are endoparasites present in just about all marine, freshwater and terrestrial structures. They infect an immense variety of definitive and intermediate hosts in the course of their existence cycles, together with either vertebrates and arthropods. This quantity, first released in 2006, examines the distribution and abundance of the Acanthocephala, and makes use of this ecological details to bare the group's huge, immense survival luck. It discusses how the acanthocephalans have advanced otherwise to all different teams of parasites, and characterize a special and replacement pathway of parasite evolution and host parasite-interactions. Written for graduate scholars and researchers in parasitology, ecology and zoology or an individual drawn to interpreting approximately parasite ecology and evolution.
