This is a book about Acanthocephales in general and also the separated and identified species of Acanthocephales in Iran fishes and other animals(Including Carnivores,Birds ,Boar) and also the only species that have been reported from Human in Iran.It seems that most of Acanthocephales in iran exist in the fishes species.
Sure we know that it has many defects and we hope to complete it in the next edition(hopefully in next fall),somewhat because it was going to being published one year a go but because of the honesty!!! of the publishing company it was published just two month ago(Sep 2008).
Hope all the readers give us their comments, recommendations and general idea about the book.
