Behavioral parasitology and perspectives on miracidial host-finding

, : Behavioral parasitology and perspectives on miracidial host-finding. Zeitschrift fur Parasitenkunde 60(3): 197-210

Miracidial host finding is reviewed. Controversies over miracidial attraction and species-specificity are considered from the standpoints of the distinction between taxis and kinesis, the need for a stimulus gradient, and the possibility of an early phase in a miracidium's behaviour adapted for dispersal rather than host-finding.

We subjected aged (22 months) and young-adult (7 months) BALB/c male mice...
