Acclimation of animal parasitic nematodes in the laboratory is the result of environmental disturbance; moderate numbers of infective larvae are introduced into and develop in a few naive hosts (versus many hosts with a resistance status to parasite infection under natural conditions), and stable conditions such as convenient moisture and temperature (versus the unstable climatic environment in the field) are offered to the free-living stages. The acclimation of sheep and goat lines of the… CONTINUE READING
