Life Cycles of Coccidia of Domestic Animals describes the structure and physiology of all stages of the life cycle of coccidian of domestic animals. This book discusses the area of location of coccidia in the body of the host. Organized into seven chapters, this book begins with an overview of the characteristics of the group of parasitic protozoa to which the coccidia belong. This text then describes the characteristics of development and duration of the coccidian infection. Other chapters consider the conditions necessary for the survival of the oocysts in the external environment. This book discusses as well the effects of external factors on sporulation. The final chapter deals with the conditions determining infection of the host by coccidia. This book is a valuable resource for microbiologists and parasitologists. Readers who are interested in the fundamental ecology of this group of parasitic protozoa will also find this book extremely useful.

Sporulation of Oocysts and Their Survival in the External Environment Significance of Oxygen during Sporulation Survival Time of Oocysts under Anaerobic Conditions Effect of Temperature on Oocyst Sporulation Relationship between Sporulation and Humidity Relationship between Sporulation and the Effects of Chemical Factors Sporulation of the Oocysts in the External Environment Effects of Radiation on Oocysts Effects of Ultraviolet Rays Effects of X-Rays Effects of Coccidiostatic Preparations on Oocyst SporulationChapter VI. Conditions Determining the Infection of the Host by Coccidia Entry of the Oocysts into the Host Excystation of Sporozoites Site of Excystation in the Digestive Tract Conditions for In Vivo Excystation Conditions for In Vitro Excystation Mechanism of Excystation Penetration of Sporozoites into the Tissues of the HostChapter VII.
