No significant difference in cercarial production was noted when Biomphalaria glabrata from Brazil were exposed to one or several miracidia of Schistosoma rodhaini from Burundi, even though the dynamics seemed different. The minor differences can be explained by the intramolluscal larval development of this parasite characterized by the production of a high… CONTINUE READING
