Four geographical strains of Galba truncatula living on riverbanks (the first on a sedimentary soil and the other three on an acid soil) were subjected to bimiracidial exposures with Fasciola hepatica to study their aptitude for cercarial shedding and to count metacercariae in snails dissected at day 42 post-exposure. All snails were reared in 14-cm Petri dishes at 24 °C, with the same spring water (60-73 mg/l of Ca²+) and the same diet (grass and lettuce leaves). Metacercariae of F. hepatica… CONTINUE READING
