Scanning electron microscopy of integumental surfaces of Schistosoma intercalatum.

Abstract

Scanning electron microscopy was employed to study critical point dried Schistosoma intercalatum adults at 120 to 6,000 X magnifications. Well-developed integrumental elevations, or bosses, with variable spination account for the roughness of the male schistosome. The female is relatively smooth even though it possesses minute spines on the posterior part… (More)
