Interaction between the Biomphalaria glabrata-Schistosoma mansoni host-parasite system and the non-target molluscs: influence on cercarial production.

Abstract

The cercarial production of Schistosoma mansoni by Biomphalaria glabrata (target mollusc: TM) was studied in relation to the presence of non-target molluscs (NTM). Nine species of NTM were tested. Whatever the type of TM-NTM association (lasting association, during prepatent period and production period, association only during the exposure of the molluscs… (More)
