Assessment of genetic variability of resistance to gastrointestinal nematode parasites in Creole goats in the humid tropics.
Goat production is widespread in the tropics. Goats are very susceptible to gastrointestinal nematode infection, but there is less evidence of their genetic resistance. Genetic resistance of CreoleExpand

Sources of variation in nutritive values of tropical forages from the Caribbean
The chemical composition, in vitro digestibility with rumen liquor and agricultural factors (age of regrowth, season, level of fertilization) of 1313 tropical forages from various islands of theExpand

Comparison of the resistance to sympatric and allopatric isolates of Haemonchus contortus of Black Belly sheep in Guadeloupe (FWI) and of INRA 401 sheep in France.
The resistance of a tropical breed of sheep towards the nematode parasite Haemonchus contortus (Hc) was compared to that of a European breed after artificial infection with the parasite following a 2Expand

Experimental infection of Black Belly and INRA 401 straight and crossbred sheep with trichostrongyle nematode parasites.
Compared to INRA 401 lambs reared in France, Black Belly (BB) lambs reared in Guadeloupe (F.W.I.) were highly resistant to both primary and secondary experimental infection with Haemonchus contortus.Expand

The influence of parasitism on the pharmacokinetics of moxidectin in lambs
Most pharmacokinetic studies on anthelmintic drugs have been performed on non-parasitized animals. However, it seems likely that the parasite burden could influence the deposition of such drugs. TheExpand

Mortality of Creole kids during infection with gastrointestinal strongyles: a survival analysis.
Mortality due to strongyles infection in small ruminants is a critical component of flock productivity in a tropical climate. In goat production, few experiments have been conducted to estimate theExpand

Changes in gastro-intestinal helminth species diversity in lambs under mixed grazing on irrigated pastures in the tropics (French West Indies).
The development of gastro-intestinal helminth diversity was monitored in lambs grazing alone or grazing with heifers in the ratio one heifer to four lambs. Five successive cohorts of lambs wereExpand

Genetic variability in resistance to gastro-intestinal strongyles during early lactation in Creole goats
The study was undertaken in a Creole goat flock at INRA-Gardel in Guadeloupe, to evaluate the opportunity to use artificial selection as a means of controlling gastro-intestinal infection duringExpand

Population evolution of the free-living stage of goat gastrointestinal nematodes on herbage under tropical conditions in Guadeloupe (French West Indies).
In Guadeloupe (French West Indies), paddocks were contaminated with gastrointestinal helminth eggs by young goats during the rainy season and the dry season. The evolution of L3 population size onExpand

Comparative efficacy of six anthelmintics for the control of gastrointestinal nematodes in sheep in Matanzas, Cuba
Abstract The efficacy of injectable levamisol, a mixture of levamisol and niclosamide, oral ivermectin, injectable ivermectin, oral albendazole and albendazole sulphoxide was evaluated in two farmsExpand
