Experimental infections were carried out using three Lymnaea truncatula populations and two Fasciola species in order to determine the trematode influence on six parameters of snail infection by either of the two trematodes. All experiments were performed using snails 4 mm long, two miracidia for each L truncatula, and a constant temperature of 20 degrees C. No significant influence of trematode species was detected in the following parameters: snail survival at day 30, the life span of… CONTINUE READING
