Some of these are proving to be even more difficult to study than the trypanosomes, and we are but slightly advanced in our knowledge of their complicated life histories. Bit by bit, however, the remarkable life cycles are being worked out. Recently Nuttall and Graham Smith1 have made an elaborate study of the infection of dogs with Piroplasma and have reached a number of important conclusions.
