medical parasitology

The study of the relationship between man and the many life-forms that adopt his body as a habitat and source of support and nutrition. Human parasites include ectoparasites such as lice, fleas, mites and some flies and endoparasites such as the wide range of worms. Bacteria and other infective micro-organisms are also parasites.

For naval healers, the "implacable situatedness of morbidity and mortality" (7)--a phrase borrowed from Charles Rosenberg--served as powerful reminders of the usefulness of hygiene and medical geography even after the acceptance of the germ theory of disease and medical parasitology. A particular strength of this book is its focus on the institutional, social, and disease environments that structured the production of knowledge about tropical medicine.
