Abstract:
Many scientists in China had done much work about the lifecycle of various cestodes. Main life-cycle research work for bird cestodes carried out by Chinese scientists is quite few, here the author just give the detail research work by Xinzhuan Su and Yuangguang Lin. We can find that the most important part of cestode development is the the larval stage that in the intermediate host and most of the species are undergoing the following five larval stages in the course of ontogenesis: a. oncosphere stage, b. lacuna stage, c. cysticcavity stage, d. scolex-formation stage, and e. cysticercoid stage. After a mature cysticercoid is take by a final host the development will complete in the intestine of the host, then the cestode may be mature and produce gravid proglottids.
