Effects of environmental temperature, sex, and infection with Hymenolepis microstoma on the liver and bile duct weights of mice.


Liver weight of mice was significantly influenced, in order of decreasing prominence, by environmental temperature, infection with Hymenolepis microstoma and sex. Livers of infected and uninfected mice (both sexes) maintained at 5 C for 20 days were proportionally larger (alpha less than or equal to 0.05) than those from corresponding groups of mice kept at… (More)
