The Growth and Migrations of Helminths

Article metrics


THE migration of helminths is one of the most interesting discoveries of modern zoology. These worms, generally parasitic, must often, in order to complete their growth, pass from one animal into another. This passage is of course accomplished by chance, as when one animal devours the whole or part of another, in which the helminth at a certain stage may be imbedded.
