Servet presents this atlas exclusively dedicated to the most important parasites and parasitoses of sheep. It is an eminently practical publication, with numerous images that help to identify parasites and understand their biological cycles. It includes a chapter on the key diagnostic techniques used to identify adult parasites, eggs and larvae.

Félix Valcárcel Sancho is a graduate in Veterinary Science from the Complutense University of Madrid (1987) and a doctor in Veterinary Science from the University of Leon (1992). For almost 20 years he has conducted research in the field of parasitic diseases, principally gastroenteritis and ectoparasites of small ruminants, working as a researcher for the Department of Agriculture of the Autonomous Community of Castilla la Mancha. He has been the principal researcher and collaborator in numerous research pro-jects in this discipline, having made important contributions to the sector, vouched for by the numerous articles that have been published in journals both nationally and internationally. Of particular note is his informative work in the form of scientific monographs intended for veterinary clinicians. He is currently professor of Parasitic Diseases, Parasitology and Zoonoses at the University Alfonso X El Sabio where he continues both his role of researcher and his informative work.
