However, consensus has not been reached probably as a result of data being collected from different sources, different temporal scales or host and parasite biogeography and(More)
Aspects related to the epidemiology of Megninia ginglymura were studied, in order to determine predisposing factors for the occurrence in layer chicken houses of commercial farms in the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. An observational, cross-sectional, analytical survey was conducted for identifying major risks or protection factors for infestations. Four(More)
