Protozoological Abstracts

Protozoological Abstracts

"Protozoological Abstracts is an online bibliographic and abstracts database of internationally published research on parasitic protozoa."

It includes a fully searchable backfile to 1973 of over 200,000 abstracts with over 8,000 new records added each year.

Protozoological Abstracts is an online bibliographic and abstracts database of internationally published research on parasitic protozoa.
 

Selected from the applied life sciences database CAB Abstracts, Protozoological Abstracts provides the latest information on all aspects of parasitic protozoa, including molecular genetics, biochemistry, physiology, morphology, taxonomy, life cycles, immunology, and the pathology, transmission, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and control of diseases caused by trypanosomes, Leishmania, Toxoplasma, amoebae, microsporidia, malaria parasites and the many other protists that are parasitic in man and domestic and wild animals.

Each week the online version delivers all the new highly-targeted, searchable summaries covering key English and non-English language journal articles, reports, conferences and books about parasitic protozoa.

Created and indexed by subject specialists, Protozoological Abstracts provides access to these abstracts by way of comprehensive indexing and classification codes.


It includes a fully searchable backfile to 1973 of over 200,000 abstracts with over 8000 new records added each year.

Protozoological Abstracts is also available in print as a monthly journal with author, subject and serials cited indexes
