Overview

Coevolution of Parasitic Arthropods and Mammals by Ke Chung Kim

Compiles and interprets information on the diversity, distribution, and adaptations of parasitic arthropods that provides the basis for studies on the evolution of biological relationships between parasites and hosts. Focuses on obligate, permanent parasites of the Insecta and Acari—including Anoplura, Mallophaga, Siphonaptera and miscellaneous parasitic insects, mites, and ticks. Coevolutionary theories are reviewed and new models are presented for the evolution of parasitic arthropods and mammals.
