Amphibians have long served as model organisms for studying animal physiology, vertebrate anatomy, and host–parasite interactions. Recently, however, the occurrence of precipitous declines in many amphibian populations and of severe limb malformations in others has catalyzed renewed efforts to understand the effects of parasites on amphibians. In this brief review, we examine the importance of two groups of trematodes that utilize amphibians as intermediate hosts: species in the genus Ribeiroia… CONTINUE READING
