Abstract


Parasites are ubiquitous (omnipresent) in nature and have made theirposition in an ecosystem so special that researchers are now convinced that these tiny creature are not only disease causing agents but are playing an important role at different levels. But the question is how to convince veterinarians who have advocated negative aspects of parasites for decades. We present here an opinion piece which will highlight some of the important positive aspects of parasites that came into limelight in last two or three decades. Parasites show great promise in ecological monitoring, disease healing and in predicting the fundamental ecological principles. We   suggest   more   debates   and   discussions   on   this   importantinterdisciplinary approach of parasites.
