1. “A Functional Biology of Parasitism: Ecological and evolutionary implications (Topics in Gastroenterology)” by G W Esch and J C Fernandez

“A Functional Biology of Parasitism: Ecological and evolutionary implications (Topics in Gastroenterology)” Book Review: This book discusses the functional biology of parasitism in both ecological as well as evolutionary paths. This book can be referred to by many researchers across this field. The main aim of this book is to illustrate and explain the way organisms make a living in nature. This book also discusses functional biology as the way organisms acquire and then make use of resources in metabolism, movement, growth, and reproduction. These processes will form the fundamental framework of all the books in the series. This book not only describes how organisms work but also considers the reason to work in that way. This book emphasizes the importance of functional integration in day­-to-day lives and the evolution of organisms. This book interacts with their environment as integrated wholes and it is in this context that individual traits have been subjected to natural selection and have evolved.

2. “Biology and Parasitism of Cabbage Butterfly, Pieris Brassicae” by Lytan Damitre and Firake D M

“Biology and Parasitism of Cabbage Butterfly, Pieris Brassicae” Book Review: This book gives us information about Pieris brassicae (L.) which is one of the most destructive pests in hilly regions of India and several parts of the World. This book can be referred to by many researchers across this field. This book tells us about the harmful pesticides used to kill such kinds of plants and also how biological control is now, emerging as an important component of pest management. This book provides information about different natural enemies of crop pests and their natural dynamics in ecosystems. It also elaborates on the tremendous scope to utilize them in biological control programs against the target pests. Additionally, the effects of different host plants on the biology and behavior of P.brassicae and its natural enemies have also been described.

3. “Living Together: The Biology of Animal Parasitism” by W Trager

“Living Together: The Biology of Animal Parasitism” Book Review: This book discusses animal parasitism in the world of life science. This book can be referred to by many undergraduates and researchers across this field. This book covers major topics like host-parasite interface in intracellular and extracellular phase, innate resistance, the immune system invertebrates, and how they are related to the parasites. This book contains diagrams and many illustrations to help the students to clear out their concepts. This book also discusses the immunity acquired in nematodes. It will be useful for training purposes. This book is designed in such a way that will make it accessible to college undergraduates or even to gifted high school students.

4. “Parasitism: The Diversity and Ecology of Animal Parasites” by Timothy M Goater and Cameron P Goater
5. “Biology of Parasitism” by Christian Tschudi and Edward J Pearce

“Biology of Parasitism” Book Review: This book is on the Biology of Parasitism. This book will attract many young researchers who have unresolved problems in parasitology and prepare them for their future as independent investigators in the field.
This book contains a piece of the content and spirit of the Biology of Parasitism Course. This book contains lectures on molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, and also immunology. This book can also be used for laboratory purposes. At the beginning of each chapter, a brief summary of the chapter is provided. This book contains illustrations and diagrams on each topic so that students can clear out their concepts easily.

6. “Producers and Scroungers: Strategies of Exploitation and Parasitism” by C J Barnard

“Producers and Scroungers: Strategies of Exploitation and Parasitism” Book Review: This book discusses both intra-and interspecific, ‘producer/scrounger’ (P/S) relationships. This book can be referred for research purposes as well as for the undergraduate who is interested in this field. This book deals with behavioral or physiological investment of pro­ducers to reduce their costs of obtaining a limited resource for example legion. It tells us how many parasites take up more or less permanent residence in or on a host individual and use the host’s ingestive, digestive or circu­latory processes to reduce their own feeding costs. This book also elaborates on the factors on the utility of scrounging, however, which includes the availability of producers, the number of scroungers exploiting them. It also includes the cost of scrounging in terms of producer avoidance, defense, and/or retaliation, the value of the limited resource, and the scope for alternative strategies of resource exploitation.

7. “Mechanisms of Lymphocyte Activation and Immune Regulation III: Developmental Biology of Lymphocytes (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)” by Sudhir Gupta and Max D Cooper

“Mechanisms of Lymphocyte Activation and Immune Regulation III: Developmental Biology of Lymphocytes (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)” Book Review: This book discusses the mechanism of lymphocyte and immune regulation and the recent advances in the understanding of the major events that shape the immune recognition. This book can be referred to by researchers and postgraduate students in this field. This book covers the analysis of immunoglobulin (Ig) gene organization and Ig repertoire diversification in lower vertebrates in mammals. It also helps in the understanding of the early development of lymphocytes, immunological tolerance, major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules in antigen presentation. This book will make students realize the clonal deletion and clonal energy may play critical roles in the maintenance of unresponsiveness to self-antigen.

8. “Vertebrate Immune System from Reptilian Perspective” by Manish Tripathi
9. “Innate Immunity of Plants, Animals and Humans (Nucleic Acids and Molecular Biology)” by Holger Heine

“Innate Immunity of Plants, Animals and Humans (Nucleic Acids and Molecular Biology)” Book Review: This book discusses innate immunity in the field of plants, animals, and humans. It not only covers the innate immune mechanisms and responses of so diverse organisms but also the major receptor systems in mammalians and humans as well as the central defense mechanisms, antimicrobial peptides, and the complement system. This book also discusses the defense mechanisms, encompassing receptor proteins that sense the presence of pathogens and effector molecules that are involved in controlling them, which are the elemental parts of the innate immune system.

10. “International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology” by Kwang W Jeon
