This chapter reviews the history of parasite manipulation of hosts – a long history, including contributions from outstanding biologists, which was surprisingly ignored by ecologists and behavioural biologists until the early 1980s. The reasons for this shift in attitude are explored, supporting data are provided, and some other contributions to our knowledge of parasite-induced behavioural change are also covered.
