Parasitology is the study of organisms that must rely on nutrition from a host organism to survive. Most parasites are not symbiotic with the host and can cause illness or death. Parasitologists study the manner of infestation of all major parasitic diseases as well as the way the parasite infects the host. As parasites can infect animals, plants and humans, the field of parasitology is vast. Parasites can also range from single-celled organisms to long multicellular worms and tiny insects, leaving many areas of study for those interested in how these diseases impact the host.
