    Learning Objectives

    After this lab you should be able to:

    1. Observe specimens and recognize characteristics that identify them as Helminths.
    2. Know the taxonomic groups and examine the diversity in the parasitic helminths: Trematoda, Cestoda, Nematoda.
    3. Relate the structure, function, and life cycles of the organisms to their ability to cause disease.
