Ecological studies on Bulinus truncatus and Biomphalaria alexandrina in Zagazig, Egypt



Ecological studies on Bulinus truncatus and Biomphalaria alexandrina in Zagazig, Egypt



Journal of the Egyptian Society of Parasitology 14(1): 245-250



Of 8599 snails collected from a canal, drains and a stream near Zagazig in Egypt between January and December 1981, 43.4% were Biomphalaria alexandrina and 16.1% Bulinus truncatus. The first of these was more abundant in the branch drain, whereas the 2nd preferred the main canal. Both species showed 3 breeding peaks. 4.85% of Biomphalaria alexandrina and 6.17% of Bulinus truncatus were infected with Schistosoma.
