Abstract

This paper demonstrates the use of a quantitative genetical technique to assess genetic variance in molluscicide resistance in a Millettia thonningii-Biomphalaria glabrata system. Results indicated that there were significant genetic variances in both snail size and survival time in 10 p.p.m. molluscicide suspension. The possibility of wider application of this technique in examining the genetic basis of molluscicide or pesticide resistance in target species is discussed.
