Question on tapeworm anatomy

Post by Jedi of Zen » Mon Jan 23, 2006 9:16 pm

My micro teacher wants the following answered:

"Name and describe the two major anatomical divisions of a tapeworm."

I know that among helminths in general, there are monoecious and dioecious worms. But does that apply to tapeworms specifically? All that I've found about tapeworms is that they all have a scolex head and a compartmentalized body. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks!
