The Parasite Zoo

Parasites are everywhere and it is normal for animals, ourselves included, to be infected with them. Parasites are specially adapted to be able to live inside other animals, and in so doing they have had profound effects on their hosts' evolution.

In these lectures we'll meet the rich diversity of parasites, and their fascinating lives.
