Abstract

is a collection of reprinted articles published under that title in the journal . Volume 1 contained six articles published in the 1980 volume. Volume 2 reprints from the 1981 volume of , in a nicely bound form, six articles, each written with the aim of presenting a concise summary of recent developments in the author's special field of interest.

Two of the articles review recent research in areas not generally classified as parasitology. One centers on the symbiotic relationships between sea anemones and fishes, especially the clownfish, which the author discusses as a problem of cellular recognition; the other reviews the records of fossil parasites in relation to the successive periods of geological and paleontological history.

A brief review of the transmammary route of infection by helminths is of exceptional interest.First recognized as a natural mode of infection in 1960 in the hookworm of seals in Alaska, the infection of newborns through the colostrum and milk has now been documented for the hookworm of dogs, species of in sheep, swine, horses and rats, the ascarids of dogs, cats and cattle, and for several other species of nematodes.
