Thomas Cribb

My work relates almost entirely to the study of trematodes which are platyhelminths parasitic as sexual adults in all classes of vertebrates and using a huge range of other animals as intermediate hosts. I see my bread and butter as contributing to the description of the fauna of Australia and the surrounding Indo-Pacific. I am also interested in biogeography, phylogenetics and elucidation of life-cycles. There remains a lot to be done.
