dna sequence analyses reveal co-occurrence of novel haplotypes of fasciola gigantica with f. hepatica in south africa and zimbabwe.the aim of this study was to identify and determine the genetic diversity of fasciola species in cattle from zimbabwe, the kwazulu-natal and mpumalanga provinces of south africa and selected wildlife hosts from zimbabwe. this was based on analysis of dna sequences of the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (its1 and 2) and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase 1 (co1) regions. the sample of 120 flukes was collected from livers of 57 cattle at 4 abattoirs in zimbabwe and 47 cattle at 6 abatt ...201526476916
distribution and habitats of the snail lymnaea truncatula, intermediate host of the liver fluke fasciola hepatica, in south africa.this paper focuses on the geographical distribution and habitats of lymnaea truncatula, the intermediate, snail host of the liver fluke, fasciola hepatica, as reflected by the 723 samples in the database of the national freshwater snail collection, potchefstroom, south africa. the 221 different loci (1/16-degree squares) on record reflect an extensive but discontinuous distribution, except in lesotho and in parts of the mpumalanga, gauteng and north west provinces of south africa. although recor ...200315038424
