Parasites are plants which attach themselves to other plants; and animals which live in or on the bodies of other animals,-so as to subsist at their expense. The mistletoe is a parasitic plant; - the louse a parasitic animal. The chief parasitic animals are the Pediculus humanus corporis, P. capitis, P. pubis, Pulex irritans, P. penetrans, and the Acarus Ssabiei.
