This volume of Advances in Parasitology has a predominantly protozoological flavor. It features: the questionable pathogenicity of Blastocytis, a ptorist closely related to amoeboflagellates; a discussion of Giardia and the evidence of early branching of the eukaryotic stem; full overview of current knowledge of the immunology of Leishmania; an explanation of the way trypanosomatids transport nutrients and ions across their membranes; a review of the biology of the coccidian parasites of fish with extensive illustrations; and, a review of the sexuality of parasitic crustaceans.
