Schizogony inEimeria tenella (Sporozoa, Coccidia)


Fine structural aspects of development in 2nd and 3rd generation schizonts were studied with experimentally infected chickens. Two developmental steps were observed in schizogony: multiplication of nuclei and succeeding merozoite formation associated with the last division of each nucleus in the schizont. Dividing nuclei had eccentric intranuclear spindles and centrioles near their poles.
