Our current work on amphibian coccidia includes studies on the taxonomy, ecology and life cycles of these poorly studied parasites.  We are currently focusing our studies on the differences in life cycle strategies in anuran and caudatan coccidia.  See also the coccidia of the world web site for more information about these parasites.
