Fleas are one of the most interesting and fascinating taxa of ectoparasites. All species in this relatively small order are obligatory haematophagous (blood-feeding) parasites of higher vertebrates. This book examines how functional, ecological and evolutionary patterns and processes of host—parasite relationships are realized in this particular system. As such it provides an in-depth case study of a host—parasite system, demonstrating how fleas can be used as a model taxon for testing… Expand
