Title: The Biology of Parasitism: An Introduction to the Study of Associating Organisms
Description: London: Edward Arnold, 1979. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 13.5x21.5cm. "This new textbook of parasite biology avoids the traditional view of parasitism as a discrete way of life and shows convincingly that it is an often arbitrarily defined part of a broad spectrum of associations between organisms. In doing this, Dr Whitfield rejects the taxonomic approach and instead organizes his material around themes such as nutrition, physiology and regulation, behaviour, and ecology and evolution." Spine is creased but block still tight, negligible handling signs to cover edges, clean and bright throughout but for a few spots to title pages and previous owner's name on half title page and remnants of old erased pencilled price.. Very Good .
