Lessons in Immunity: From Single-cell Organisms to Mammals stems from the activity of the Italian Association of Developmental and Comparative Immunobiology (IADCI), represented by the editors. This book is presented as a series of short overviews that report on the current state of various relevant fields of immunobiology from an evolutionary perspective. The overviews are written by authors directly involved in the research, and most are members of the IADCI or have otherwise been involved in the related research for their respective overview. This publication offers scientists and teachers an easy and updated reference tool.
Provides simple and updated reviews on the immunobiology of a wide spectrum of organisms, considered in an evolutionary context
Focuses on both cells and humoral components of a variety of non-classical model organisms
Offers in a single volume many contributions which can help with understanding the evolution of immune responses and the main adaptations in animal phyla
Presents a valuable holistic cross-sectional approach for teaching immunology and its applications
The book is primarily intended for scientists/ university teachers and researchers in comparative (invertebrate and vertebrate) immunobiology. In addition, it offers an evolutionary approach which is a novelty also for teachers and students of medical schools.

Loriano Ballarin is associate professor of Zoology at the Dept of Biology, University of Padova (Faculty of Science). He got his Master in Biological Sciences at the University of Pisa and the Licence in Biology of the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa in 1982. After some research experiences abroad (University of Zurich, CH; Glaxo, Ware, UK) and in Italy (Glaxo S.p.A., Verona) he got his PhD in Evolutionary Biology at the University of Padova in 1989. His main interest is to elucidate the role of hemocytes in immunobiology of marine invertebrates, with particular reference to ascidians.
