About the Author

Dr. Duszynski, is Professor Emeritus Biology and past Chair of the Department of Biology, The University of New Mexico (UNM). He spent 33 years in academia, publishing numerous articles, monographs, and books, secured private, state and federal grants exceeding $8 million, and mentored > 25 masters and doctoral students and numerous undergraduates in his laboratory, before spending 8 years in administration. During his 41 year tenure at UNM, he taught many courses including parasitology, tropical biology and marine invertebrate biology, and took >1000 students to the neotropics (Belize, Jamaica, Mexico). Don has been a Visiting Research Associate Professor, Department of Physiology & Biochemistry, University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston, a Visiting Associate Professor, Department of Microbiology, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, and Visiting Research Scholar, Kyoto University, Japan. Among the honors received are the Distinguished Service Award and the Clark P. Read Mentor Award from the American Society of Parasitologists (ASP), and the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Department of Biology, Colorado State University.

Dr. Kvičerová has been focusing for more than 10 years on morphology, taxonomy, and phylogenetic evolutionary and population-genetics research on several model systems of apicomplexan parasites, particularly on eimerians in mammals and haemogregarines in reptile hosts. Her research is mainly related to the areas of coevolutionary studies between host and parasites, and to the host-specificity of apicomplexans. She has participated in several grant projects focused on all of these topics and is a mentor of both graduate and undergraduate students. She also is employed part-time at the Biology Centre, Institute of Parasitology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, and as a veterinarian in a private vet office, both in České Budĕjovice, Czech Republic

Dr. Seville has spent 30 years investigating the taxonomy, systematics and biology of coccidia from a variety of host groups including wild mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. He received a NATO-NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship to work at the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and has been a visiting research associate at the University of New Mexico
