parasitology

The study of organisms which use other organisms as their living environment. Medical parasitology is concerned mainly with the larger, usually visible, parasites of humans such as the various worms and the external parasites (ectoparasites). Bacteria, viruses and protozoa, although parasites, are so important as to require separate disciplines and are not normally included in medical parasitology.
