Endoparasites live inside the body and comprise mostly the parasitic worms (helminths). Helminth infections cause significant disease in wild and domestic animals, while attempts to control them are challenged by changing epidemiological patterns and drug resistance. We take a predictive ecological approach, in an attempt to understand the complex interactions between host, parasite and environment, and to utilise this knowledge to achieve sustainable control.
