Trematode parasites of Otago Harbour (New Zealand) soft‐sediment intertidal ecosystems: Life cycles, ecological roles and DNA barcodes
Abstract Parasites, in particular trematodes (Platyhelminthes: Digenea), play major roles in the population dynamics and community structure of invertebrates on soft‐sediment mudflats. Here, weExpand

Chapter 1. The biology of the caecal trematode Zygocotyle lunata.
This chapter examines the significant studies on the caecal paramphistomid Zygocotyle lunata from mainly 1941 to 2008. This digenean is one of two paramphistomid species in the family Zygocotylidae.Expand

The Association of Zygocotyle lunata and Echinostoma trivolvis with Chaetogaster limnaei, an Ectosymbiont of Helisoma trivolvis
Helisoma trivolvis snails collected from a lake in Warren County, New Jersey, in June 2007 possessed the ectosymbiont Chaetogaster limnaei (Annelida). Some of these snails were also infected withExpand

Excystation of the Encysted Metacercariae of Echinostoma trivolvis and Echinostoma caproni in a Trypsin-Bile Salts-Cysteine Medium and Morphometric Analysis of the Excysted Larvae
A trypsin-bile salts-cysteine (TBC) medium was used to excyst the encysted metacercariae of Echinostoma caproni and Echinostoma trivolvis, 2 allopatric species of Echinostoma. This medium was used toExpand

Longevity of Echinostoma caproni in Balb/c mice
Abstract This study used Balb/c mice to examine the longevity of Echinostoma caproni. Five mice each exposed to 75 encysted metacercariae (cysts) were necropsied at 23 weeks postinfection (PI) (160Expand

EFFECTS OF VARIOUS PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL FACTORS ON EXCYSTATION OF THE ENCYSTED METACERCARIAE OF ECHINOSTOMA CAPRONI
Various physical and chemical factors were studied to determine their effects on the viability of encysted metacercariae of Echinostoma caproni. Viability was equated with chemical excystation in anExpand

The effects of various chemical and physical factors on encystment and excystment of Zygocotyle lunata
The effects of various chemical and physical treatments on the cercariae and metacercariae of Zygocotyle lunata were studied. Cercariae that actively emerged from Helisoma trivolvis snails wereExpand

Viability of the Encysted Metacercariae of Echinostoma caproni Judged by Light Microscopy Versus Chemical Excystation
The purpose of this study was to determine the viability of encysted metacercariae of Echinostoma caproni stored in Locke's solution 1:1 at 4 C for 1–24 wk. Viability was judged by light microscopyExpand
