Exposure of free-living infective stages of parasites to contaminants may be important in affecting prevalence and intensity of parasite infections.
This study investigated whether atrazine, an herbicide commonly used in North America, affected the cercariae and metacercariae of Sphaeridiotrema globulus, a digenetic trematode.
