MICRO-PARASITISM-WAY OF LIFE
A series of specific parasites illustrates the major aspects of this form of life. The parasite-host relationship is examined in its varying degrees of harm to the host. How this manner of life affects the parasite itself is also considered, including such matters as degeneration and special problems of reproduction. The set consists of: Saprolegnia - whole mount living (5x); Wheat rust on wheat stem - x.s. stained (100x); Trypanosoma lewisi - smear stained (1500x); Paramecium bursaria - whole mount living (550x); Dog flea - whole mount living (7x); Clam larvae - whole mount stained (40x); Chinese liver fluke - whole mount stained (11x); Alpha virus on e. coli - electron m/scope (60,000x).
