Nematode parasites of marsupials and small rodents from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Nematodes from opossums and rodents captured in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil were studied and Stilestrongylus aculeata was referred for the first time in Akodon cursor.
Trematodes of free range reared guinea fowls (Numida meleagris Linnaeus, 1758) in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Morphology and pathology
An investigation on the digenetic trematodes parasitizing free range reared guinea fowls was conducted in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, based on clinical examination, necropsies and
Comparative study of four species of Trichuris roederer, 1761 (Nematoda, Trichurinae) by scanning electron microscopy
Qualitative and quantitative analyses of cuticular inflation associated with the bacillar band, vulva and male external genital appendages were made for each species; they are of taxonomic value.
A new description of the reproductive system of Schistosoma mansoni (Trematoda: Schistosomatidae) analyzed by confocal laser scanning microscopy
The results show that the reproductive system does not follow a unique pattern within flatworms, and morphological differences in the ovary, vitteline glands and testicular lobes between specimens derived from unisexual or mixed infections are found.
Genetic and morphological characterisation of a new species of the genus Hysterothylacium (Nematoda) from Paralichthys isosceles Jordan, 1890 (Pisces: Teleostei) of the Neotropical Region, state of
The maximum parsimony and neighbour joining tree topologies demonstrated that the Brazilian larvae belong to Raphidascarididae and represent a unique genetic entity, confirmed as a new Hysterothylacium species.
Cestodes of the flounder paralichthys isosceles jordan, 1890 (osteichthyes - paralichthyidae) from the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The present study deals with the taxonomic identification of the cestodes parasitizing this fish species, as well with the analysis of parasitological indexes, sites of infection, taking into account the hygienic-sanitary importance of the host in Brazilian and foreign markets.
Digenea and acanthocephala of elasmobranch fishes from the southern coast of Brazil.
Digeneans and acanthocephalans are reported for the first time parasitizing elasmobranch fishes in Brazil.
Helminth parasites of conventionally maintained laboratory mice.
The scope of this investigation has been widened to also include morphometric data on the parasites, to further simplify their identification, since the presence of helminths in laboratory animals is regarded as a restricting factor for the proper attainment of experimental protocols.
Patterns of infection with the nematodes Syphacia obvelata and Aspiculuris tetraptera in conventionally maintained laboratory mice.
Data on the frequency, distribution and mean intensity of the helminth fauna recovered from outbred and inbred mice conventionally maintained in Brazilian animal houses, are reported. The oxyurid
