This introduction to the following collection of review articles discusses briefly why some researchers chose to study platyhelminths, especially parasites, and some of the important principles and concepts that emerge from these reviews. One observation is that these are challenging animals to work with. Although much has emerged of note, much remains to be done and this introduction highlights a few of these areas.

L'introduction à cette série d'articles de synthèse expose brièvement pourquoi certains chercheurs ont choisi d'étudier les plathelminthes, particulièrement les parasites, et traite de quelques-uns des principes et des concepts importants qui ressortent de ces synthèses. Il apparaît clairement que l'étude des plathelminthes pose des défis stimulants. Bien que de nombreux résultats intéressants aient déjà été obtenus, beaucoup de problèmes restent à résoudre, dont quelques-uns sont présentés ici.[Traduit par la Rédaction]
