High prevalence of antimicrobial‐resistant genes and integrons in Escherichia coli isolates from Black‐headed Gulls in the Czech Republic
Aims:  To carry out an assessment of the occurrence of resistance to antimicrobials in Escherichia coli that has been isolated from young Black‐headed Gulls in three nesting colonies.
Toxoplasmosis is a common infection in wild mammals from the Czech Republic, but its prevalence varies considerable according to taxonomic groups and different localities where wild mammals live. Expand
Prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum antibodies in wild boars in the Czech Republic.
Serological results indicate a common exposure to T. gondii and to N. caninum among wild boars in the Czech Republic. Expand
Differential Role of Passerine Birds in Distribution of Borrelia Spirochetes, Based on Data from Ticks Collected from Birds during the Postbreeding Migration Period in Central Europe
While B. garinii transmission is associated with only a few passerine bird species, Eurasian blackbirds, song thrushes, and great tits have the potential to distribute millions of Lyme disease spirochetes between urban areas. Expand
Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum antibodies in sheep in the Czech Republic.
In the Czech Republic, serum from 547 sheep coming from nine farms was examined for antibodies against parasites Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum by screening ELISA, finding the first evidence of N.Caninum antibodies in sheep from the Czech Czech Republic. Expand
Antibiotic-Resistant Escherichia coli Bacteria, Including Strains with Genes Encoding the Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamase and QnrS, in Waterbirds on the Baltic Sea Coast of Poland
Even if populations of wild birds are not directly influenced by antibiotic practice, it is demonstrated that antibiotic-resistant E. coli strains, including strains with various ESBL and qnrS genes, are found in the feces ofWild birds on the coast of the Baltic Sea in Poland. Expand
Antibiotic‐resistant Salmonella and Escherichia coli isolates with integrons and extended‐spectrum beta‐lactamases in surface water and sympatric black‐headed gulls
To examine surface water from a pond in the northeastern part of the Czech Republic and young black‐headed gulls nesting on the same pond for the presence of antibiotic‐resistant Salmonella and Escherichia coli. Expand
High prevalence of Salmonella and IMP-4-producing Enterobacteriaceae in the silver gull on Five Islands, Australia
The data demonstrate a large-scale transmission of carbapenemase-producing bacteria into wildlife, likely as a result of the feeding habits of the birds at a local waste depot, and proper measures applied to stop the transmission into the environment. Expand
Blackbirds and Song Thrushes Constitute a Key Reservoir of Borrelia garinii, the Causative Agent of Borreliosis in Central Europe
Blackbirds and song thrushes are found to carry 95% of all spirochete-infected tick larvae among 40 bird species captured in Central Europe. Expand
Prevalence of Neospora caninum and Toxoplasma gondii Antibodies in Wild Ruminants From the Countryside or Captivity in the Czech Republic
First evidence of N. caninum infection in mouflon is found in wild ruminant sera from the Czech Republic, the first N.caninum seroprevalence study in farmed red deer, and the first survey ofN.Caninum in wildRuminants from thezech Republic. Expand
