This chapter reviews recent advances made by parasite community biologists in dissecting the organization of parasite communities at different spatial scales. From a broader scale at which a big picture on parasite species gradients can emerge to community assembly rules in the organization of parasite species assemblages on host, it focuses on recent findings in parasite species diversity and community patterns, which could orientate new research on the functioning of ecosystems dynamics and evolution as a whole.
