Genetic hybridisation between parasitic nematode species has potentially important consequences. It could lead to the introgression of genes between species including those involved in pathogenicity, host specificity, transmission and drug resistance. It could also complicate diagnosis and control. However, there are few compelling examples of its occurrence in parasites in the field. Haemonchus contortus and Haemonchus placei are two closely related parasitic nematode species that… CONTINUE READING
