9780128013670: The Biology and Identification of the Coccidia (Apicomplexa) of Turtles of the World

The Biology and Identification of the Coccidia (Apicomplexa) of Turtles of the World is an invaluable resource for researchers in protozoology, coccidia, and parasitology, veterinary sciences, animal sciences, zoology, and biology. This first-of-its-kind work offers a taxonomic guide to apicomplexan parasites of turtles that enables easy parasite identification, with a summary of virtually everything known about the biology of each known parasite species. It is an important documentation of this specific area, useful to a broad base of readers, including researchers in biology, parasitology, animal husbandry, diseases of wild and domestic animals, veterinary medicine, and faculty members in universities with graduate programs in these areas.

There are about 330 turtle species on Earth; many are endangered, a growing number of species are kept as pets, and some are still used as food by humans. Turtles, like other vertebrate animals have many different kinds of parasites (viruses, bacteria, protozoa, worms, arthropods, and others). Coccidiosis in turtles has prevented large-scale turtle breeding, and represents a serious problem in need of control. This succinct and highly focused book will aid in that effort.

  • Offers line drawings and photomicrographs of each parasite from each hosts species
  • Provides methods of identification and treatment
  • Presents a complete historical rendition of all known publications on coccidia (and their closest relatives) from all turtle species on Earth, and evaluates the scientific and scholarly merit of each
  • Provides a complete species analysis of the known biology of every coccidian described from turtles
  • Reviews the most current taxonomy of turtles and their phylogenetic relationships needed to help assess host-specificity and evaluate what little cross-transmission work is available

From the Back Cover:

There are about 330 extant turtle species on Earth; many are endangered, a growing number of species are kept as pets, and some are still used as food by humans. Turtles, like other vertebrate animals have many different kinds of parasites (e.g., viruses, bacteria, protozoa, worms, arthropods, etc.), but there is no definitive text that covers any one of these groups found in all turtles.

Apart from viral diseases that can be controlled by vaccination, coccidiosis in turtles has prevented large scale turtle breeding. Coccidiosis is a serious global problem and there is a need for their identification and control. The Biology and Identification of the Coccidia (Apicomplexa) of Turtles of the World is an invaluable resource for researchers in protozoology, coccidia, and parasitology, veterinary sciences, animal sciences. zoology and biology. Not only restricted to turtles it is of great interest for parasitologists and agricultural faculties.Written by world-class coccidiologists, this book is an important classic documentary and small reference book currently unavailable.

During his 41 year tenure at UNM, he taught many courses including parasitology, tropical biology and marine invertebrate biology, and took >1000 students to the neotropics (Belize, Jamaica, Mexico). Don has been a Visiting Research Associate Professor, Department of Physiology & Biochemistry, University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston, a Visiting Associate Professor, Department of Microbiology, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, and Visiting Research Scholar, Kyoto University, Japan. Among the honors received are the Distinguished Service Award and the Clark P. Read Mentor Award from the American Society of Parasitologists (ASP), and the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Department of Biology, Colorado State University.

Johinca Morrow is a doctoral student pursuing a degree of Applied Ecology in the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UN-L). She holds a M.S.in general biology and a B.S.in organismal biology from Midwestern State University (MSU), Wichita Falls, TX. She has been teaching biology since 2008 and served as assistant to the Associate Director of Cedar Point Biological Station (summer, 2013). Her honors include several President’s scholarships, the Beyer-Abbott Scholarship for excellence in biology , and a graduate student merit scholarship (MSU). As an undergraduate she was a member of MSU’s Honor Society, Beta Beta Beta, and Phi Alpha Theta, as well as a member of Who’s Who Among American Colleges and Universities (2009). Shewas nominated as a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society (2012). As a graduate student, she has become an active member of the American Society of Parasitologists (ASP), the Southwestern Association of Parasitologists (SWAP), and the Rocky Mountain Conference of Parasitologists (RMCP). She is broadly interested in parasite biology, but is focusing her attention on the field of archaeoparasitology as a doctoral student.
