Description

Approaches to Research on the Systematics of Fish-Borne Trematodes is a concise guide for systematic studies of the prevalence of fish-borne trematodes both in the endemic areas and experimental laboratories. It includes methods to identify species of fish-borne trematodes to enhance the precision of research studies based on the metacercarial stage.

Misidentification of trematode species is a common occurrence when researchers are new to the field and have no guidance. Consequentially, sometimes publications report inaccurate prevalence rates of these parasites. This compact guide gives clear direction on:



Collection of parasites in the final hosts
Collection of cercaria from snail first intermediate hosts
Collection of metacercaria from fish hosts
Molecular identification of parasites
Systematics of fish-borne trematodes

About Jitra Waikagul

JitraWaikagul has been a specialist in helminthology of the Department of Helminthology, Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, Thailand, since 1971. She holds a B.Sc. (Zoology) from Chulalongkorn University, an M.Sc. (Tropical Medicine) from Mahidol University, an M.Sc. (Parasitology) from Queensland University, Australia, and a Ph.D. (Medical Science) from Hiroshima University, Japan. Her research contributes to expanding knowledge of the biology and taxonomy of zoonotic helminthes, in particulars fish- and crustacean-borne tremotodes. Urusa Thaenkham has been worked as a specialist in molecular systematics of helminths in the Department of Helminthology, Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University, Thailand. She finished her Ph.D. (Tropical Medicine) from Mahidol University. Her research interested is focused on molecular systematics of helminths, in particularly fish- and crustacean-borne trematodes.
