"Keys to the Trematoda will become the standard reference on the group for many years. Given the infrequency of appearance of such large works, this is likely to remain the definitive work for the first half of this century and to find a place on book-shelves all over the planet."
David Blair - School of Tropical Biology
"...we consider the Keys to represent a valuable contribution to taxonomic research on trematodes...Keys to the Trematoda will undoubtedly represent an indispensable source of basic information about the systematics of these helminths."
Scholz & Horak - Folia Parasitologic
"The editors and the authors have succeeded in preparing a book which is valuable to experts, practising Parasitologists and beginners, and they should be congratulated on their great success."
