"........Taken together, paleoparasitology is the application of investigative techniques to archeological samples, revealing the parasitic infection patterns among past populations. Like the previous issue or section of paleoparasitology, the current collection of reports from different continents forms an important data resource that must be significant to forthcoming paleoparasitological studies. We admit that this special section is a kind of declaration that paleoparasitology can be established at last as an important research tool for studying ancient parasite infection patterns even in Asia, the largest and most populous continent with a long history and a deep-rooted cultural heritage."
from "Preface for Special Section on Paleoparasitology" of the current issue of KJP, by Chai et al.
