Description

Order code: SP 478

The potential for Schistosomiasis to expand over a wider geographical area and infect a larger number of humans has never been greater; concurrently, concern has increased about the continued development of hydroelectric projects, large irrigation systems, and human migration. This manual provides a background of existing knowledge on freshwater and terrestrial snails in tropical America as it relates to trematode and nematode diseases of humans and domestic animals. It is directed mainly to public health workers who possess a reasonable knowledge of biology and to zoologists interested in medical malacology. Though intended as an introduction to the subject, it contains sufficient technical information so that it can be used for reference purposes.
