VIII European Multicolloquium of Parasitology
10-14 September 2000, Poznan, Poland
Plenary Session
The 8th European Multicolloquium of Parasitology was held in Poznan between 10-14 September 2000. The Editorial Office of Acta Parasitologica (AP), decided that it will be useful and helpful to render accessible the columns of AP to the EMOP-8 Organising Committee for publication of the selected materials prepared for Multicolloquium, despite that our journal is not the official organ of the Polish Parasitological Society, serving as the co-organiser of this Meeting.
In number 3 of the volume 45 (2000) of Acta Parasitologica, we already published the EMOP-8 Abstracts. Unfortunately, because of some organisation problems, we were not able to publish earlier in the same number the materials presented during plenary session. We are fulfilling this duty at present, by publishing here, the full text of the three contributions from the plenary session. These informative review articles will give you an opportunity to become acquainted with: (1) a brief review of the history of Polish parasitology and its connections with European parasitology; (2) an interesting review on broad problems of parasitic diseases presented to general public by means of postage stamps; and (3) the impact of research on parasites beyond parasitology. We hope that the publication of these reviews will meet with an approval and interest of our readers.
