The Biology and id of the Coccidia (Apicomplexa) of Turtles of the World is a useful source for researchers in protozoology, coccidia, and parasitology, veterinary sciences, animal sciences, zoology, and biology. This first-of-its-kind paintings deals a taxonomic consultant to apicomplexan parasites of turtles that allows effortless parasite identity, with a precis of almost every little thing identified concerning the biology of every recognized parasite species. it truly is a big documentation of this particular region, worthy to a vast base of readers, together with researchers in biology, parasitology, animal husbandry, ailments of untamed and family animals, veterinary medication, and school contributors in universities with graduate courses in those areas.
There are approximately 330 turtle species on the earth; many are endangered, an increasing number of species are stored as pets, and a few are nonetheless used as nutrition by way of people. Turtles, like different vertebrate animals have many alternative sorts of parasites (viruses, micro organism, protozoa, worms, arthropods, and others). Coccidiosis in turtles has avoided large-scale turtle breeding, and represents a major challenge wanting keep an eye on. This succinct and hugely concentrated publication will relief in that effort.
- Offers line drawings and photomicrographs of every parasite from each one hosts species
- Provides tools of identity and treatment
- Presents an entire historic rendition of all identified guides on coccidia (and their closest kinfolk) from all turtle species in the world, and evaluates the clinical and scholarly advantage of each
- Provides an entire species research of the recognized biology of each coccidian defined from turtles
- Reviews the most up-tp-date taxonomy of turtles and their phylogenetic relationships had to aid investigate host-specificity and overview what little cross-transmission paintings is available
