Helminths and helminthic disease section edited by Hesham Al-Mekhlafi This section publishes articles relating to parasitic Platyhelminthes, Nematoda and Acanthocephala including host-parasite relationships, epidemiology and disease, molecular taxonomy and phylogenetics, life-cycles and intermediate hosts, population genetics and community ecology.
Parasites of veterinary importance section edited by Emanuele Brianti This section publishes articles relating to parasites and parasitic diseases of domestic, companion and farm animals including studies on biology, epidemiology, pathology, immunology, diagnosis and control. Studies relating to wildlife helminthic disease reservoirs and to ectoparasites and vectors of veterinary significance that do not fit within the remits of the other sections will also be considered.
Vector-borne zoonoses and One Health section edited by Filipe Dantas-Torres This section publishes studies relating to parasitoses and vector-borne diseases of zoonotic or veterinary significance and includes Leishmania parasites, phlebotomine sand flies, triatomines, tick-borne pathogens and ticks, including taxonomy, biology, phylogenetics, diagnosis, ecology and control.
Dipteran vectors and associated disease section edited by Indra Vythilingam and David Weetman This section publishes studies pertaining to the systematics, phylogenetics, identification (including new species descriptions), population genetics, bionomics, distribution, predictive mapping, diagnostics, biosurveillance and control of dipteran vectors and their associated diseases, particularly Aedes, Anopheles, Culex, Glossina and Simulium.
Protozoan biology and disease section edited by Frank Katzer This section publishes studies looking at all aspects of protozoan cell biology, host-parasite interactions and pathogenicity including pathogenic mechanisms, virulence factors, host invasion, immune evasion, host defence, and immunity.
Parasite genetics, genomics and proteomics section edited by Xing-Quan Zhu This section publishes studies applying platform technologies to the innovation of diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines for parasitic diseases.
