Go to Cercariae of Digenetic Trematodes: Use In Laboratory Investigations
Cercariae of Digenetic Trematodes: Use In Laboratory Investigations
In the complex life cycle of a digenetic trematode, the cercaria larva is shed from a snail intermediate host and represents a short-lived, aquatic transfer stage to the next host. Due to its temporar...

Go to Developing Biology Board Games
Developing Biology Board Games
Students need to be challenged to think outside the familiar formats, and motivated to apply what they’ve learned in a non-threatening environment. This is why I make games for many of my biology cour...
