doi:10.1186/1756-3305-7-33: Quinnell: Review of “ Ascaris: the neglected parasite ” by Celia Holland (Ed.). Parasites & Vectors 2014 7:33.
“Overall, this volume can be highly recommended to all with an interest in parasitic nematode infection and neglected tropical diseases. It is both an excellent summary of the current state of knowledge of Ascaris infection, and a very useful resource for those studying other parasites. As the cover states, it ‘provides a blueprint of how a single parasite can stimulate interest in basic biology, clinical science, veterinary science, public health and epidemiology’, and will hopefully continue to stimulate interest for years to come.”
Editor: Prof. Celia Holland is Professor of Parasitology at TCD’s Department of Zoology and Head of the School of Natural Sciences. She describes herself as a parasitologist with a particular interest in the relative contributions of host exposure and susceptibility to parasite intensity from an epidemiological standpoint.
