The ecology of Bulinus truncatus and Biomphalaria alexandrina and its implications for the control of bilharziasis in the Egypt-49 project area



The ecology of Bulinus truncatus and Biomphalaria alexandrina and its implications for the control of bilharziasis in the Egypt-49 project area



Bulletin of the World Health Organization 35(3): 339-356



The respective vectors of Schistosoma haematobiun and S. mansoni in Egypt do not have the same ecological distribution. Bulinus truncatus is most abundant in large canals and decreases in density as the water approaches and flows into drains. Biomphalaria alexandrina is most abundant in drains and decreases in density upstream from these habitats.
