The coccidia receive much attention because they cause heavy losses in mammals and birds, domestic and wild, in the temperature zone. Their rôle in man is insignificant. Becker's book gives an excellent summary, with helpful host catalogue and bibliography, of the present knowledge of coccidial species, host specificity, life cycles, pathogenicity, immunity, prevention and treatment.
