Advances in Parasitology by John R. Baker
Book DescriptionFirst published in 1963, "Advances in Parasitology" contains comprehensive and up-to-date reviews in all areas of interest in contemporary parasitology. Now edited by J. R. Baker, Ralph Muller, and David Rollinson and supported by an international Editorial Board, the series includes medical studies on parasites of major influence, such as trypanosomes and scabies, and reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy, and life history, which shape current thinking and applications. In 1999, the Institute for Scientific Information released figures showing that "Advances in Parasitology" has an Impact Factor of 4.913, placing it second in the highly competitive category of Parasitology. This edition features up-to-date reviews, including: the malaria-infected red blood cell: structural and functional changes; schistosomiasis in the Mekong region: epidemiology and phylogeography; molecular aspects of sexual development and reproduction in nematodes and schistosomes; and, antiparasitic properties of medicinal plants and other naturally occurring products.

Author Biography - John R. Baker
Professor David Rollinson is a Merit Research Scientist at the Natural History Museum in London, where he leads a research team in the Wolfson Wellcome Biomedical Laboratories and directs the WHO Collaborating Centre for schistosomiasis. He has had a long fascination with parasites and the diseases that they cause, this has involved him in many overseas projects especially in Africa. He is on the WHO Expert Advisory Panel of parasitic diseases, the editor of Advances in Parasitology and a former President of the World Federation of Parasitologists. His research group uses a multidisciplinary approach, which combines detailed molecular studies in the laboratory with ongoing collaborative studies in endemic areas of disease, to explore the intriguing world of parasites in order to help control and eliminate parasitic diseases.
