With kindest regards, Joe " If you want to know what metacercariae and miracidia are, go to: http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/agriculture/livestock/sheep/health/liverfluke-disease-sheep-cattle Climate Dogs Climate and weather of course are important for worms (and their hosts). "The Climate Smart Agriculture Team have released the NSW version of the Climate Dogs. This project was managed by Michael Cashen, our Agricultural Climatologist based in Wagga. This project has used animations to communicate complex atmospheric and ocean interactions that drive the main climate systems in NSW. Please feel free to forward the link to clients outside the agency. http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/agriculture/resources/climate-and-weather/variability/climatedogs Understanding the climate and how it works is really an interesting area of work. " Any questions or feedback please contact either Michael or myself.
