Planarians belong to the class of the free-living flatworms
(Turbellaria) and these, in turn, belong to the phylum of
platyhelminthes (flatworms). They occur in both freshwater and
marine environments, feeding as predators, for example, on the eggs
of fishes and shrimps in aquaria. They therefore present a problem
to breeders of ornamental fishes.
On account of its large number of stem cells, the planarian Dugesia
tigrina is of great significance to research.
