PROTOZOA AND FOOD
BeschreibungProtozoans are the most primitive animals of earth known to inhabit a vast array of aquatic and terrestrial habitats. This is a comprehensive account laying emphasis on Protozoology in relation to food. It also touches the areas of fish biology, food microbiology, and will be helpful to provide useful information to general public by educating people about health care and hygiene. Here Protozoa with special reference to amphizoic amoebae have been reported from edible freshwater fishes, prawn, vegetables, mushrooms, soil and water. The findings are a preliminary effort that will provide a significant database to understand the ecology of protozoa and their relationship with their host and will be helpful in suggesting suitable preventive measures. This work has been reported for the first time from India. Besides enriching knowledge, the book with its illustrations also caters the interests of amoebologists, research scholars, UG and PG students.
