Microsporidia can infect a variety of hosts, including hosts which are themselves parasites. In that case, the microsporidian species is a hyperparasite, i.e.

McConnaughey, in Reference Module in Biomedical Sciences, Microsporidia. Microsporidia are obligate, spore-forming, intracellular fungal parasites that invade vertebrates and invertebrates.

A characteristic feature of microsporidia is the polar tube or polar filament found in the spore used to infiltrate host cells. These eukaryotic parasites infect mainly arthropods and fish, but. Introduction. Microsporidia are ancient eukaryotic intracellular parasites.

Their life cycles include multiple stages, they can change hosts and they affect all eukaryotic organisms [1–3].Microsporidia are also found in the form of spores with various diameters outside of the cell [].At present, approximately genera and over species of Microsporidia have been described, among which Cited by:   Out of marine fish from the Red Sea belonging to three different species that were collected and examined for microsporidian parasites, 87 (%) fish were found to be infected.

This book indicates how classical zoological studies can be combined with biochemical, immunological and molecular approaches to lead to a fascinating synthesis. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to review this book, and I hope many others will be able to experience the world of the platyhelminthes by immersing themselves in these by: The flatworms, flat worms, Platyhelminthes, Plathelminthes, or platyhelminths (from the Greek πλατύ, platy, meaning "flat" and ἕλμινς (root: ἑλμινθ-), helminth- meaning "worm") are a phylum of relatively simple bilaterian, unsegmented, soft-bodied other bilaterians, they are acoelomates (having no body cavity), and have no specialized circulatory and Clade: Rouphozoa.

Morphological description of these parasites help in the exact determination of their taxonomy which may aid with the molecular tools in the development of anti substances against these parasites.

Helminthes are a group of invertebrate organisms which include animals belonging to two important phyla namely, platyhelminthes and nemathelminthes.

Several species of the group helminthes have adapted themselves to the parasitic mode of life. Platyhelminthes The phylum name Platyhelminthes literally means "flatworms." Members of this phylum are soft, thin-bodied, leaf or ribbonlike worms, including the familiar planaria of ponds and streams, as well as the flukes and tapeworms parasitic in human and other animal bodies.epidemiology of plankton parasites.
