Die turbellarien als Parasiten und Wirte

Nature volume 70, pages 294295 (28 July 1904) | Download Citation



PROF. VON GRAFF'S latest work dealing with the Turbellaria is no less interesting than any of its predecessors, and students of parasitology must stand greatly indebted to him for putting together in such an accessible and stimulating form a full summary of all that is at present known of parasitism amongst the Turbellaria. The first half of the work is devoted to an account of the anatomy of six species of parasitic rhabdoccels. Although all of these have been previously described by von Graff himself, or by other writers, the ampler accounts here given clear up many doubtful points and supply precise information not hitherto available on various anatomical features. This part of the work is illustrated with three plates of great excellence.
