Coccidiosis in Livestock, Poultry, Companion Animals and Humans is a long needed update and review for this group of clinically important protozoan parasites that infect a wide variety of hosts. It's been 25 years since the coccidia were thoroughly reviewed with updated information so it's timely and needed. The group of internationally recognized authors and subject matter experts have updated important aspects about Coccidiosis including detailed chapters on their biology, phylogeny, immunity, vaccination, modern molecular biology techniques, anticoccidial drugs, and new information on the coccidia of cattle. Coccidiosis in Livestock, Poultry, Companion Animals and Humans will be a must have comprehensive resource for a wide range of global scientific disciplines for upper level undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers that include veterinary parasitologists, veterinarians, physicians, clinicians, and animal and poultry scientists. - Daniel E.
