The prevalence and epidemiology of gastrointestinal parasites of horses in Victoria, Australia.
A quantitative post mortem study of 150 horses from Victoria was conducted to determine the prevalence and epidemiology of gastrointestinal parasites, which found that 17 species of strongyle were present in high abundance, which allowed their site distribution in the large intestine to be determined.

A combined microscopic-molecular method for the diagnosis of strongylid infections in sheep.
The findings of the present study indicate that a microscopic-molecular approach provides a useful tool for diagnosis, for epidemiological and ecological surveys as well as for integration into parasite monitoring, drug resistance, and control programmes, particularly following semi- or full-automation.

Observations of Biologically Generated Turbulence in a Coastal Inlet
Measurements in a coastal inlet revealed turbulence that was three to four orders of magnitude larger during the dusk ascent of a dense acoustic-scattering layer of krill than during the day,Expand
Differences in the second internal transcribed spacer (ribosomal DNA) between five species of Trichostrongylus (Nematoda: Trichostrongylidae).
The second internal transcribed spacer (ITS-2) of the ribosomal DNA of 5 species of Trichostrongylus has been sequenced and the recognition sites for several enzymes located within the regions of sequence homology for the five species are of important diagnostic value for species identification.

Toward practical, DNA-based diagnostic methods for parasitic nematodes of livestock--bionomic and biotechnological implications.
The advances made in recent years provide a solid foundation for the development of practical, highly sensitive and specific diagnostic tools for epidemiological investigations and for use in control programmes. Expand
The evolutionary origins of nematodes within the order Strongylida are related to predilection sites within hosts.
It is shown that, in contrast to all previous hypotheses, one major lineage comprises taxa which occur exclusively in the pulmonary, circulatory or nervous systems of marsupial and eutherian mammals, whereas a second lineage comprises species occurring in the gastrointestinal tracts or perirenal tissues of vertebrates, or in the lungs of birds.

The genus Acanthobothrium (Cestoda : Tetraphyllidea : Onchobothriidae) parasitic in Australian elasmobranch fishes
The onchobothriid tetraphyllidean cestode genus Acanthobothrium van Beneden, 1849, parasitic in the spiral intestine of elasmobranch fishes, was investigated in the Australian region, finding 27 species, including 27 that are new, to be investigated. Expand
