Molecular identification of Mesocestoides spp. from intermediate hosts (rodents) in central Europe (Poland)
The results of the research on the larval stages from rodents, living in a periphery of urban agglomeration as well as in an area of reserve protection, confirm the data of more frequently occurring Mesocestoides litteratus. Expand
On the systematic position of Collyricloides massanae Vaucher, 1969 (Platyhelminthes: Digenea) with notes on distribution of this trematode species
It is accepted that C. massanae appears among the Pleurogenidae, forming a clade with Gyrabascus amphoraeformis (Modlinger, 1930) and Cortrema magnicaudata (Bykhovskaya-Pavlovskaya, 1950) and the commonly accepted placement of Collyricloides as the sister genus to C Mollyriclum within the Collyiclidae is rejected.

Molecular characteristics of representatives of the genus Brachylecithum Shtrom, 1940 (Digenea, Dicrocoeliidae) with comments on life cycle and host specificity
Cercarial and metacercarial isolates from the snails showed 100 % similarity to B. lobatum; thus, it is the first record of Cepaea snails as intermediate hosts of this species and the first report on life cycle abbreviation within the Dicrocoeliidae. Expand
Does meatiness of pigs depend on the level of gastro-intestinal parasites infection?
The aim of the present paper was to determine an influence of the presence and a level of intestine parasites infection on the quality of pork carcass expressed by the content of meat in carcassExpand
Helminth parasites of laboratory mice and rats.
The fact that many laboratory rodent colonies were found to be parasite contaminated suggests a need for eradication and improvment of the quality of laboratory rodents, and suggests to pay special attention on controlling the sanitary conditions of animal houses. Expand
The systematic position and structure of the genus Leyogonimus Ginetsinskaya, 1948 (Platyhelminthes: Digenea) with comments on the taxonomy of the superfamily Microphalloidea Ward, 1901
The taxonomic position and phylogenetic relationships between the type-species L. polyoon and L. postgonoporus are investigated and the Leyogonimidae Dollfus, 1951 should be recognized as a synonym of the Pleurogenidae. Expand
Small rodents as reservoirs of Cryptosporidium spp. and Giardia spp. in south-western Poland.
There was a statistically significant correlation between host species and Giardia infection where A. agrarius was the species of the highest prevalence and the first record of the C. parvum zoonotic species from the striped field mouse. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and systematic position of the families Cortrematidae and Phaneropsolidae (Platyhelminthes: Digenea).
The phylogenetic relationships of this family and its constituent genera and families within the superfamily Microphalloidea were evaluated using previously published and newly obtained sequences of 28S rDNA of Cortrema magnicaudata (Bykhovskaya-Pavlovskaya, 1950) (Cortrematidae), Phaneropsolus praomydis Baer, 1971 and Microtrema barusi Sitko, 2013 (Phanersolidae).

The effect of urbanization on helminth communities in the Eurasian blackbird (Turdus merula L.) from the eastern part of the Czech Republic
The clear qualitative and quantitative differences in the helminth community of T. merula obtained from two ecologically disparate localities show that urbanization leads to a significant reduction in theHelminth fauna of a bird which is highly adapted to synanthropic habitats, while still remaining common in its original forest habitat. Expand
Extrinsic- and intrinsic-dependent variation in component communities and patterns of aggregations in helminth parasites of great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo) from N.E. Poland
The study clearly showed that processes determinate diversity, structure, richness, and patterns of aggregation in helminth assemblages of avian hosts are multi-origin and highly complex. Expand
