Twelve Parasites of Christmas

Mistletoe

Mistletoe, figgy pudding, reindeer, and even turtle doves: who would pair any of these with parasites? Parasitologists, of course. The Twelve Parasites of Christmas heralds the end of Parasite of the Day for 2010, a blog created to celebrate the overlooked freeloaders of biodiversity during the International Year of Biodiversity.
