Parasites obtain their nutrition from living hosts and negatively impact their hosts’ evolutionary fitness.  In fact, parasites are the most successful of all eukaryotic consumer groups on our planet; however, most are poorly known to science.  In this course the biology, systematics, life histories, genomics and cultural, economic, and historical importance of parasites will be explored.   Emphasis will be placed on protozoan and metazoan parasites of biomedical importance and their significance in the development of human civilization.
