Abstract:
The work described in this thesis was initially directed towards the elucidation of the self-cure phenomenon as a flock phenomenon under natural grazing conditions. As a consequence of these studies it became apparent that several important aspects of the epidemiology and of the clinical syndromes associated with haemonchosis required further investigation. The thesis is therefore essentially a description of haemonchosis of sheep in an endemic area supported, where indicated, by observations obtained by experimental infections. Each of the separate aspects studied is prefaced by a review of the relevant literature and the details of many individual observations which are not included in the text may be found in the various appendices. Some results, for example the individual faecal egg counts and worm burdens at autopsy, were too voluminous to be included and these are available at The Veterinary School of the University of Glasgow.
