Reported Incidences of Parasitic Infections in Marine Mammals from 1892 to 1978
by John R. Felix
150 pp, 8.5x11"; e-book FREE, hardcover $40.00

Searching the older scientific literature for parasite infection prevalence and geographical distribution has been a sometimes necessary but laborious challenge. This new comprehensive bibliography is a convenient resource that consolidates information about the parasite groups Acanthocephala, Acarina, Anoplura, Cestoda, Nematoda, and Trematoda, and the marine mammal hosts of orders Pinnipedia, Cetacea, and Carnivora, including accepted (or suspected) taxonomic synonyms and geographical information about the host and/or parasite. It provides a valuable reference for stranding response personnel, aquatic animal veterinarians, marine biologists, and professional parasitologists.
John R. Felix is a lecturer in the Department of Marine and Environmental Sciences at Northeastern University, with degrees in fisheries biology and public administration from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst), San Diego State University, and Harvard University.
