      Nearly all living organisms are exploited by some sort of parasite. But what are parasites? How many different types are there? What exactly is parasitism? In this undergraduate textbook parasitism is described as an ecological relationship. Ecology implies the study of the interaction between organisms and their environments and the fact that parasites' hosts are alive . In evolutionary biology, parasitism is a relationship between species, where one organism, the parasite, lives on or in another organism, the host, causing it some harm, and is adapted structurally to this way of life. The entomologist E. O. Wilson has characterised parasites as .

    In Parasitism, Claude Combes explores the fascinating adaptations parasites have developed through their intimate interactions with their hosts. He begins with the biology of parasites—their life cycles, habitats, and different types of associations with their hosts. Next he discusses genetic interactions between hosts and parasites, and he ends with a section on the community ecology of. The parasite derives all benefits from association and the host may either not be harmed or may suffer the consequences of this association, a parasite disease. The parasite is termed obligate when it can live only in association with a host or it is classified as facultative when it can live both in or on a host as well as in a free form.

    Parasitism is a relationship between two species of animals or plants in which one benefits at the outflow of the other, sometimes without killing the host life form. Parasites will cause parasitism. Parasites can belong to various classifications based on their characteristics, size, and .

The entire book is based on the findings of various studies performed by different authors, comprising reviews and original scientific papers.

For 40 years, the Biology of Parasitism (BoP) Course has served a critical role in training the next generation of parasitologists: bringing bright, motivated students together with outstanding and committed faculty to create a stimulating environment for interaction, education and discovery.

Biology of Parasitism is intended to present a snapshot of the content and spirit of the Biology of Parasitism Course. By presenting a series of chapters that reflect the formal lectures that students receive on a daily basis, as well as the approaches used during the laboratory section of the Course, the editors hope to share some of the science that occurs there.

About this book. This heavily illustrated text teaches parasitology from a biological perspective. It combines classical descriptive biology of parasites with modern cell and molecular biology approaches, and also addresses parasite evolution and ecology.

Parasitism is a pervasive phenomenon in nature involving, either as hosts or as parasites, virtually all species on earth. By definition, parasites are costly for their hosts as they divert resources for their growth, reproduction and survival with no rewards for the hosts. Parasitism is generally defined as a symbiotic relationship between the two living species in which one organism is benefitted at the expense of the other.

The organism that is benefitted is called the parasite, while the one that is harmed is called the host.
