Parasitology is the study of the biology of parasites and their host. Flora and fauna bodies are rich environments which have been colonized by parasites throughout evolutionary history. The field of parasitology has developed out of the curious efforts of scientists to understand parasites and their relationship with their hosts.
Parasitism is a physiological association between two living organisms. It could be between animals, plants or between an animal and a plant. It could be short or long term association. In this association, one of the associates (the parasite) depends on the other (the host) for its nutritional requirements as well as other metabolic needs. The parasite needs the host because it has lost its physiological independence. The parasite benefits from the host as well as does damage (injures) or harm to the host.
