Plasmodium falciparum parasites invade and replicate within red blood cells, causing severe human disease. Newly invaded parasites form ring stages, reminiscent of an engagement ring, and then develop through trophozoite forms before undergoing nuclear development and forming schizonts (pictured) which contain over 30 invasive daughter merozoites.
