Co-evolution of bulinid snails and African schistosomes



Co-evolution of bulinid snails and African schistosomes



Medicine in a tropical environment Proceedings Int Symp, 19-23 July, 1976, Pretoria, S Africa: 291-302



The distributions of "relic" Bulinus spp. in Africa and their susceptibilities to infection with Schistosoma spp. are described. It is shown that, unlike the widely distributed and better known bulinids, some of the "relic" species exhibit a wide spectrum of host potential, possibly because they have a defence system which is easily evaded by the parasites.
