Mmmm - parasites!

Harry's quite the linkophile - I'll often pop over to his blog to see what he's ferreted out. Today I struck gold when Harry linked to Carl Zimmer's blog - Carl wrote one of the best books I've ever read about parasites, and his views on the biology of parasitism is proving to be very influential on my conbiology activities. Definitely a link for the sidebar.

Thanks, Harry!

  1. That's such an interesting book.

  2. It remains one of my favourite reads. I particularly enjoyed the hookworm speculation (about them being the cause of the dumb Redneck Yank stereotype on account that hookworm infestation has an effect on perceived intelligence), and how clearing up intestinal worm infections may have triggered the rise of Crohn's disease.
