Prevalence and age-related variation of Cryptosporidium species and genotypes in dairy calves.
TLDR
The findings clearly demonstrate that earlier reports on the presence and prevalence of C. parvum in post-weaned cattle that were based solely on oocyst morphology must be reassessed using molecular methods to validate species and genotype. Expand
Prevalence of species and genotypes of Cryptosporidium found in 1-2-year-old dairy cattle in the eastern United States.
TLDR
A lower prevalence of infection in 1-2-year-old dairy cattle than in younger cattle as well as a change in the diversity of species present are demonstrated. Expand
Distribution of the avian hematozoa of North America.
The literature pertaining to the prevalence of avian hematozoa in North America, north of Mexico, together with unpublished records from the files of the International Reference Centre for AvianExpand
Multiple DNA markers differentiate Sarcocystis neurona and Sarcocystis falcatula.
TLDR
The data suggest that S. neurona and S. falcatula can be differentiated with useful sequence heterogeneity between the 2 organisms and that multiple Sarcocystis spp. Expand

  • 1 August 1994
TLDR
Evidence is provided to rebut the perception that bluetongue virus (BTV), once introduced to a country, would decimate its sheep industry and recognition that BTV is a common infection of ruminant livestock throughout the tropics and sub-tropics apparently within several separate ecosystems. Expand
Effects of logging on gastrointestinal parasite infections and infection risk in African primates
TLDR
It is demonstrated that selective logging can be associated with changes in an important ecological association between hosts and parasites, and indicates that anthropogenic habitat change could influence patterns of parasite infection in primates with associated effects on population performance.

PLASMODIUM RELICTUM AS A CAUSE OF AVIAN MALARIA IN WILD-CAUGHT MAGELLANIC PENGUINS (SPHENISCUS MAGELLANICUS)
TLDR
Analysis of group transport history, disease prevalence in co-quarantined birds not sent to Des Moines and climatological data implicated Des Moines as the likely site for initial exposure, although information is not conclusive, stress and concurrent disease certainly contributed to the severe mortality in this group of penguins infected with P. relictum.

GASTROINTESTINAL PARASITES OF THE COLOBUS MONKEYS OF UGANDA
TLDR
Prevalence of S. fulleborni was higher in adult male compared to adult female red colobus, but prevalence did not differ for any other shared parasite species between age and sex classes. Expand
Prevalence and genotypes of Giardia duodenalis in post-weaned dairy calves.
TLDR
While many of the calves were infected with a genotype that is not known to be infectious for humans, post-weaned calves on nine of 14 farms did harbor Assemblage A Giardia, so calves should be considered as a potential source of human infectious cysts in the environment. Expand
Prevalence of ectoparasites in a population of feral cats from north central Florida during the summer.
TLDR
The objective of this study was to determine the potential feline ectoparasites in domestic cats by using a cohort of feral cats from north central Florida that have not received veterinary care and have no known exposure to insecticide application. Expand
