Abstract

The current status of knowledge of speciation and strain differentiation in Echinococcus is discussed, with particular reference to the Australian scene. A new approach to the problem using morphological, developmental and biochemical differences is described and the importance of correct identification for the practical aspects of controlling the disease is stressed.
