                      HOST-PARASITE DATA-BASE

The records presented below are extracted from 18Mb of host-parasite
data compiled from the literature since 1988 (data for 1922-1988 are
available in manuscript catalogues).

E-mail reports are designed to be printed elite (12 characters per
inch): this can be achieved by writing the report to disc and reading 
it into a word-processor as an ascii file. A line feed appears on e-mail
as a reverse video `o': this is lost and a blank line appears when 
printed.
