Need advice

Dear all:  My students and I will be collecting many species of pocket
  gophers in the near future, and although we routinely collect all
  ectoparasites and some endoparasites from the gophers, we need to
  brush-up on the most modern methods for collecting more broadly among the
  endoparasites (cestodes, nematodes, trematodes, coccidea, etc...), while
  retaining their usefulness for DNA studies.     Our collaborator, Steve
  Nadler, suggested the 1982 book "The Collection and Preservation of
  Animal Parasites" (compiled by Pritchard and Kruse).

  I would appreciate other suggestions for "required reading" for
  mammalogists interested in learning the best methods for collecting
  parasites to be used in molecular and morphological studies.

 Thank you, in advance, for your help.
