Morphology of Plasmodium berghei: light microscospy

See 'Morphology P. berghei light microscope images' 'for a number of images from the different life cycle stages

A description of the (light-microscopic) morphology, including pictures of different life-cycle stages can also be found in Landau, I. And Boulard, Y. (1978) Life cycles and Morphology. In: Rodent Malaria (R. Killick-Kendrick and W. Peters, eds.) pp. 53-84.Academic Press, London.

Figure 1: Morphology of blood stages of P. berghei. From: Mons, B (1986) Acta Leiden. 54, 1-124).  Stages shown are from synchronized blood stage infections of the ANKA strain of P. berghei at several time points after invasion (hpi) of merozoites into erythrocytes.
