Abstract

Included in the Phylum Platyhelminthes or the flatworms is the Class Cestoidea which includes the tapeworms or cestodes which are considered in this chapter. These parasites are hermaphrodites and the head of the worms or scolex attaches itself to the host by suckers. The body of the parasite consists of a variable number of segments or proglottides which contain both ovaries and testes.
