    Concluding remarks: Fleas are strongly specialized to periodic ectoparasitism on small mammals and demonstrate a variety of life histories and associations with their hosts. This makes fleas a very convenient model for testing hypotheses related to evolutionary ecology of parasitism. Some of these studies will be reviewed in further chapters of this book.
