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

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.
