This treatise on the malarial parasites of man and lower primates is the first attempt to bring together studies from this large number of species of (24), and the task has been so well done that there seems to be little question that it will become a classic in this field. In the first section consideration is given to theories on the evolution of the Haemosporidia, a historical review, discussion of the ecology of the parasites and their hosts, and descriptions of the life-cycles of the parasites (including their relation to relapses in the vertebrate hosts). The five sections which follow deal with parasites of ) the -type (10), ) the -type (3), ) the -type (4), ) the -type (4), and ) other types not clearly fitting into any of these four groups (3).

The theories of early evolution are fairly presented with emphasis on the gaps still existing in factual information necessary to definitive conclusions.
