Schistosomiasis in Kano State, Nigeria. II. Field studies on aestivation in Bulinus rohlfsi (Clessin) and B. globosus (Morelet) and their susceptibility to local strains of Schistosoma haematobium (Bilharz)



Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 82(6): 571-579



Aestivation patterns in B. rohlfsi and B. globosus in Kano State, Nigeria, were studied by digging transects across the floor of their dried habitats and by monitoring changes in snail population structure during the period when the habitats were flooded. B. rohlfsi, which inhabited a small man-made lake, was found to aestivate towards the bottom of its habitat, aestivation occurring during the last 6 weeks before the lake dried.
