INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF PARASITES OF WHITE-WINGED DOVES AND MOURNING DOVES IN FLORIDA1
The parasites of indigenous populations of mourning doves in north and south Florida were compared with those of an introduced population of white-winged doves (Z. asiatica) in south Florida and showed a more diverse parasite fauna than did the white-Winged or mourning dove populations from south Florida.
SEROPREVALENCE OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE AGENTS IN FREE-RANGING FLORIDA PANTHERS (FELIS CONCOLOR CORYI)
Because <50 animals remain in this relict population and the probable resultant depression of genetic diversity and lowered disease resistance, FPV or other disease agents could contribute to the extinction of this endangered subspecies.
Pathogenicity of Haemoproteus meleagridis (Haemosporina: Haemoproteidae) in experimentally infected domestic turkeys.
The authors' results demonstrated significant pathological changes in H. meleagridis-infected domestic turkeys that were associated primarily with preerythrocytic stages of development.

THE EPIZOOTIOLOGY OF EUSTRONGYLIDOSIS IN WADING BIRDS (CICONIIFORMES) IN FLORIDA
Densities of aquatic oligochaetes, which may act as first intermediate hosts, were highest at sites containing infected fish and at sites with a source of nutrient pollution, and lower at freshwater and estuarine mainland colonies than at marine colonies.
