Digenea species in chosen populations of freshwater snails in northern and central part of Poland.
TLDR
To determine the biodiversity of digenean larvae in the snail populations from various water bodies, snails under study were collected from 29 reservoirs situated in northern and central part of Poland during the period 1999-2005.
Cercariae (Trematoda, Digenea) in European freshwater snails - a checklist of records from over one hundred years
Department of Invertebrate Zoology, Institute of General and Molecular Biology, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Gagarina 9, 87-100 Torun, Poland (e-mail: Anna.Cichy@umk.pl, ezbikow@umk.pl) Faculty of
Infestation of Lymnaea stagnalis by digenean flukes in the Jeziorak Lake
TLDR
The logistic regression has shown that parasite prevalence increased significantly with the snail size (with the individuals >30 mm being the most infected), the distance from the beginning of the year and the vicinity of summer.
One snail – three Digenea species, different strategies in host-parasite interaction
TLDR
In this mini-review, three different ways of snail exploitation by Digenea larvae are presented and demonstrate that successful use of first intermediate host can be arranged in different ways.
Infection of snails with bird schistosomes and the threat of swimmer’s itch in selected Polish lakes
TLDR
Studies of selected species of Lymnaeidae and Planorbidae showed that infection with bird schistosomes occurred in 14 of the 26 Polish lakes studied, and cercariae, potentially pathogenic to humans, may have caused dermatitis in patients registered in one of the regions under study.
[Invasion of Dermanyssus gallinae (De Geer, 1778) in poultry farms in the Toruń region].
The studies were conducted in three big fully automaticised egg-laying farms within the boundaries of Toruń Voivodship, where Dermanyssus gallinae (DE GEER 1778) was present. The increased invasion
The invasive Chinese pond mussel Sinanodonta woodiana (Lea, 1834) as a host for native symbionts in European waters
TLDR
The results show that S. woodiana can affect directly and indirectly water habitats and the vulnerability of infection with symbionts depends on ecosystem conditions, and it occurs that even considerable climate differences do not pose a barrier for exotic mussels to spread.
Do larvae of trichobilharzia szidati and echinostoma revolutum generate behavioral fever in lymnaea stagnalis individuals?
TLDR
Temperature had a great influence on the longevity of emerged cercariae and the thermal behavior of infected snails is not a symptom of behavioral fever but probably can play a therapeutic role in the host.
THE EFFECT OF DIGENEA LARVAE ON CALCIUM CONTENT IN THE SHELLS OF LYMNAEA STAGNALIS (L.) INDIVIDUALS
TLDR
Calcium concentration in the shells of naturally infected individuals of Lymnaea stagnalis was found to be higher than that in the shell of uninfected ones only in the lake with the lowest calcium concentration in water, and small adult snails from 2 lakes had more calcium in their shells than did large ones.
