This book had its origins in a symposium held in December 1983 to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the completion of a two-volume monograph on the Acanthocephala by Anton Meyer, and to acknowledge appreciation of the monumental works of Harley Jones Van Cleave. The scope and significance of the contributions of these stalwarts are reviewed in introductory chapters, respectively by D. W. T. Crompton and Wilbur Bullock, who for many years have themselves been major contributors to the Acanthocephala literature. The intent of the symposium, and the book, was to summarize the knowledge that had accumulated over the previous 50 years on all aspects of the biology of the Acanthocephala. This was admirably accomplished in chapters on by Omar Amin, by D. M. Miller and T. T. Dunagan, by Jane Starling, by D. W. T. Crompton, by Gerald Schmidt, by Brent Nichols, by A. P. Dobson and A. E. Keymer, and by C. H. Kennedy.
