NotesG. Friedrich H. Kuchenmeister. A major breakthrough in helminth life-cycles. Kuchenmeister called the strobilate form Taenia crassipes [not crassiceps]. He published a preliminary note for the stated purpose of establishing priority as well as advancing the subject. Counts as "causation" in present context only if tapeworm infecton is seen as "disease." As a physician, Kukchenmeister probably did so see it, but the contribution could be classified as Miscellaneous or Causation.
