          Abstract

          During the intramolluscan larval development of Schistosoma haematobium (Algerian strain) in Bulinus truncatus, two replication processes of daughter sporocysts occur. Replication by direct sporocystogenesis appears more important than sporocystogenesis post cercariogenesis. These mechanisms assure a periodic renewal of the sporocyst stock in the snail host and seem to be synchronized with the development of cercarial generations. The succession of several generations of cercariae is responsible for the alternation of high and low periods of productivity. The scheme proposed for the intramolluscan development of S. haemtobium is compared with those described for S. mansoni and S. bovis and interpreted in terms of demographic strategies adapted to a better exploitation of the snail host.
