The technique of allozyme electrophoresis has recently been used to document genetic variation occurring within certain genera of various parasitic protozoa (Shirley and Rollinson 1979; O'Donoghue et al. 1986; Andrews et al. 1988). The technique has proven to be a reliable alternative (or adjunct) to conventional taxonomic studies that rely heavily on phenotypic characters such as differences in host specificity or parasite morphology or pathogenicity. Although such studies enable the… CONTINUE READING
