1Introduction into Parasitic Protozoa
Leonhard Schnittger and Monica Florin-Christensen
Abstract
Parasitic protozoans are protists\u2014i.e., unicellular eukaryotes. Besides, they 
share the common features of being heterotrophic, motile in at least one of their 
stages, and dependent on a host for survival. Protists are a highly diverse evolu-
tionary unrelated grouping that is at present taxonomically divided into at least 
five supergroups or eukaryotic kingdoms: SAR, Excavata, Amoebozoa, 
Archaeplastida, and Ophistokonta. The protozoan parasites that infect farm ani-
mals and pets, and are the subject of this book, belong to the first three super-
groups. These organisms can cause significant morbidity and mortality in 
domestic animals, thus provoking substantial economic losses associated with 
livestock production or major concern for pet
