 en Insect Trypanosomatids: the Need to Know More
Sergei A Podlipaev

Abstract

Of ten recognized trypanosomatid genera, only two pathogenic Trypanosoma and Leishmania have been actively investigated for any length of time while the plant flagellates Phytomonas have recently begun to attract attention due to their role as agricultural parasites. The remaining genera that comprise parasites associated with insects have been largely neglected except for two or three containing popular isolates. This publication reviews current knowledge of trypanosomatids from insects.
