The text information regarding Giardia was constructed from research from the following resources:-

  • Microbiology by Prescott, Harley, and Klein (2nd edition) ISBN0-697-01372-3 USA
  • The discovery of Giardia by Brian Ford PDF here (I fully recommend this as a definitive explanation about Giardiia)
  • Wikipedia Data here
  • Health information online here

A larger and better resolved movie (4.5 MByte) of Giardia in avi format can be downloaded here. It is copyright. Please see above notices.
The 3D model used is available for Licencing from

3D Models
A list of 3D models that we are currently aware of as appropriate for biological, microscopical, and medical use is maintained in the 3D model section of our
site here.
