Abstract

Background: Snails species belonging to the genus Bulinus (Planorbidae) serve as intermediate host for flukes belonging to the genus Schistosoma (Digenea, Platyhelminthes). Despite its importance in the transmission of these parasites, the evolutionary history of this genus is still obscure. In the ...

Abstract

Fasciolid flukes are among the largest and best known digenetic trematodes and have considerable historical and veterinary significance. Fasciola hepatica is commonly implicated in causing disease in humans. The origins, patterns of diversification, and biogeography of fasciolids are all poorly...

Abstract

A phylogenetic study of 10 schistosome genera using approximately 1100 bases of the large subunit of the nuclear ribosomal gene complex revealed 2 major clades. One clade is entirely mammalian and includes the genera Schistosoma and Orientobilharzia. A close examination of relationships in this...

Abstract

This study correlates information on the evolutionary relationships of the anuran genus Xenopus with patterns of speciation and host specificity of the monogenean parasites of the genus Protopolystoma (mostly newly recognised species whose descriptions have not yet been formally published). ...

Abstract

Data on the natural host range of Schistosoma bovis (Planorbarius metidjensis and 10 species of Bulinus) were obtained from 45 published studies conducted throughout its range in Africa, the Middle East and Southern Europe. Data on the experimental host range of S. bovis from different parts of its ...

Abstract

A survey was conducted at a locality in the Eastern Transvaal Lowveld where the prevalence of human infection with the bovine parasite, Schistosoma mattheei, is relatively high. It was found that, when compared to the number of S. haematobium eggs released into the environment, the number of S....
