Abstract

THE following is an outline of a method of obtaining large numbers of the larvæ of nematodes parasitic in sheep in media the composition of which can be much more accurately controlled than any that have hitherto been used. Experimental work on these organisms should throw light on the physiology of nematodes and be of great assistance in the treatment and control of these parasites.
