This is a series of 19 papers delivered before the Second International Conference of the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology held at the University of Pennsylvania, 7 to 9 September 1965 in conjunction with the Bicentennial Celebrations of Medical Education in the United States. In planning for this second conference, the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology took the opportunity to invite several authorities from various fields to “discuss the current information available in their particular areas and to present a synthesis of the knowledge to those at the conference and to the readers of this volume.”

A breakdown of subject matter of the 19 articles is as follows: ecology (four), development and morphogenesis (four), pathology (four), immunity (four), nutrition (one), exsheathment and hatching mechanisms (one), and zoonoses (one). Some of the articles are not, in any sense of the word, reviews, but rather are reports of current research.
