1. When the eggs of the skin parasitic monogenean Entobdella soleae are subjected in the laboratory to alternating periods of light and darkness (LD 12:12, LD 6:18 or LD 18:6) at constant temperature (selected from the range 12-16 °C), hatching is rhythmical, most of the oncomiracidia emerging during the first 4 h of the period of illumination on each successive day. 2. Rhythmicity in response to alternating 12 h periods of light and darkness persists in a wide range of lighting conditions… CONTINUE READING
