CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue of Paleoparasitology A global perspective on ancient parasites: Current research projects

Organized by Min Seo, Karl Reinhard, Dong Hoon Shin
Using a variety of recently developed research techniques, paleoparasitological research has rapidly developed in recent years, entering a new stage to better understand our ancestors’ parasitic infections across the world. Despite these achievements, there has not much opportunity for archaeoparasitologists to gather and share in-depth opinions. For this reason, the 14th International Congress of Parasitology (ICOPA) held in Korea (Aug 19-24, 2018; EXCO) have provided very meaningful opportunities for the researchers concerned. The sessions were organized by archaeoparasitologists under the unified theme of "A global perspective on ancient parasites: Current research projects". In the sessions, many great studies were presented for parastologists, archaeologists, and paleopathologists from South Korea as well…
