malarial synchrony

   I'm just wondering if anyone had any idea how or why some malarial
infections
(P. vivax, etc.) establish synchronous growth during erythrocytic
schizogeny?  P. falciparum does not, which either makes it special or
absolutely uninteresting (and also makes my research more difficult) - so
what's the story?
Somewhere in here there's a good project...
