about this item

Throughout his career at Wake Forest University, Gerald Esch has worked on a series of long term projects, including at Gull Lake, Michigan and Charlie's Pond, North Carolina. Ecological Parasitology tells the story of these (and other) studies through biographical explorations of their participants. It focuses on key moments of discovery and explores how these achievements were due to collaboration, mentoring, and community building within the field of ecological parasitology. The author explores how discoveries about the biology of parasites have influenced ecological and evolutionary theories, drawing on experience from a career that has spanned nearly fifty years.

Case studies reveal:

Dynamic reduction in metacercariae infrapopulations in larval mayflies following dramatic reversal in water quality

Changes in population and community dynamics of parasites in reservoirs subjected to thermal ad chemical pollution

Snail Parasite Interaction

Wide-ranging cover of ecological parasitology in aquatic ecosystems

This engaging book is most suitable for professional ecologists, professors, and students (undergraduate and postgraduate) interested in the way that science progresses through collaboration, mentoring and community-building.
