The study of parasites is called as parasitology. Parasites are microbial organisms that survives on host. Some of the parasitic diseases such as malaria may lead to lethal conditions. Parasitic organism such as protozoa feed on other microbes for their survival. Warm climatic condition favours for the parasites to cause infection or disease. African countries are more prone to malaria kind of infections. The worm parasites that cause human diseases are tape worms, pin worms and round worms. Filariasis is another kind of parasitic diseases transmitted from one person to other through insects, wherein the leg swells and resembles an elephant leg. Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature. Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method. Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species.
