Evaluation of actual and relative measurements used in the description of metorchis conjunctus trematoda opisthorchiidae


Proceedings of the Helminthological Society of Washington 48(2): 172-176
Evaluation of actual and relative measurements used in the description of metorchis conjunctus trematoda opisthorchiidae
Significant changes in measurements of M. conjunctus (Cobbold) have been observed subsequent to dehydration of the adult worms. Actual measurements changed 14.62-22.78%. Ratios computed from actual measurements reduced the effects of dehydration such that no significant differences could be detected by the Student's t test. Linear regression analysis indicated that relationships between components of various ratios were significant enough to warrant use in the taxonomy of this and possibly other Digenea.
