Life cycle typically includes 5 developmental stages 2. Life cycle typically includes 2 or more intermediate hosts 3. Species specificity for 1 st intermediate host always high 4. Specificity for other intermediate, and definitive, hosts low 6. Life cycle includes asexual replication of developmental stages, normally in 1 st intermediate host 5. Adulthood only achieved in a definitive vertebrate host Lecture 8 - 3 PARASITIC STRATEGIES - TREMATODES Lives in...
