	Ok, I have a question about hosts in the life cycle of parasites.  
Specifically what is the difference between primary, secondary and alternate 
hosts?  I think I can remember reading that primary hosts are the site of 
sexual reproduction for the parasites, but I'm not sure if that's right.  
Also, are secondary hosts and alternate hosts the same thing?
	I know this is an elemental question, but I was just hoping to get 
this all sorted out.
