Laboratory studies on the direct effect of temperature on Bulinus truncatus and Biomphalaria alexandrina, the snail intermediate hosts of schistosomes in Egypt



Laboratory studies on the direct effect of temperature on Bulinus truncatus and Biomphalaria alexandrina, the snail intermediate hosts of schistosomes in Egypt



Folia Parasitologica 21(2): 181-187



Controlled experiments suggest that the lethal extremes of temperature for embryo, young and adult Bulinus truncatus and Biomphalaria alexandrina are close to 10 deg C and 37 deg C. The influence of temperature on snail growth is most pronounced during the first month after hatching, with the optimum around 25 deg C.
