Measurements of glucose and amino acid concentrations, temperature and pH in the habitat of Polymorphus minutus (Acanthocephala) in the intestine of domestic ducks.

Abstract

Most individuals in an infection of the acanthocephalan parasite Polymorphus minutus (Goeze, 1782) in domestic ducks are found in a region extending from 65% to 75% of the distance along the host's intestine (Crompton & Harrison, 1965). The exact location and mode of attachment of the parasites in this habitat has been described by Crompton, Shrimpton… (More)
