is divided into four sections. These are: Helminths, Arthropoda, Protozoa, and Technique Procedures. The seeming lack of phylogenetic sequence of subject matter should be obvious to those individuals who have taught elementary courses in parasitology where few prerequisites are necessary for enrollment.

Generally speaking, the manual has been carefully organized and there are glimmers of the “live” approach to parasitology. The student is given instructions for finding and preparing various groups of parasites for study. Parasites of zoological and medical importance are covered. Keys to the common digenetic trematode, cestode, acanthocephalan, nematode, acarinan, anopluran, mallophagan, and siphonapteran families or superfamilies are furnished. The key to the former, as expected of most keys to the Digenea, is apt to be confusing to beginning students. The key to the families of North American Acanthocephala is excellent. No keys are given for other parasite groups.The manual is well illustrated and the figures, in most instances, are clear and well labeled.
