SOFTWARE
--------

John Walker and Guy Cox Software have produced a program on CD-ROM or
floppy disk that deals with morphology of stages of all species of Plasmodium
infecting humans.  This is titled: The Malaria File.  It is available 
from Guy Cox Software, P.O. Box 366, Rozelle, NSW, 2039 Australia 
Phone / fax: -61-(0)2-8181896.  

It is quite useful for teaching if you have the computer setup.


AUDIOVISUAL
-----------

The American Society of Clinical Pathologists have an excellent 
projection slide set on human parasites which includes slides of all 
species of Plasmodium.  However, I have not yet been able to purchase a 
set in spite of requests on several occasions.  If you can get the set, 
it is very useful for teaching.


HARDCOPY
--------

For teaching malaria, the best book is Basic Malaria Microscopy Part I. 
Learner's Guide (for the students & you) and Part II. Tutor's Guide (for 
you). This is a 1991 WHO production. ISBN 92 4 154430 9 (pt 1) and 92 4 
154431 7 (pt 2).  Absolutely essential. And they make teaching so easy!
