ABSTRACT
The article studies the application of neutral theory as a null model for parasite communities. The neutral theory of biodiversity and biogeography is a null model of community structure that suggests that it may be possible to explain the richness and relative abundance of species through neutral processes of immigration, extinction and speciation, without resort to interactive processes such as competition.
