Genetic characterization and phylogenetic position of Echinococcus felidis (Cestoda: Taeniidae) from the African lion.
TLDR
Taeniid eggs from lion feces in Uganda and amplified DNA from individual eggs indicated the presence of a distinct species of E. granulosus felidis, which had been identified morphologically approximately 40 years ago in South Africa. Expand
A 12-month survey of the gastro-intestinal helminths of antelopes, gazelles and giraffids kept at two zoos in Belgium.
TLDR
The findings suggest different nematode infection levels between herds, which are mainly due to husbandry conditions but to a lesser extent to species- or individual susceptibility, are suggested. Expand
Bothriocephalosis in the common carp in the Eastern Transvaal.
TLDR
The first outbreak of bothriocephalosis in common carp in South Africa is recorded, caused by Bothriocephalus acheilognathi, a pseudophyllid tapeworm not previously identified in this country. Expand
A descriptive study of the canine population in a rural town in southern Africa.
TLDR

Parasites of South African wildlife. XIX. The prevalence of helminths in some common antelopes, warthogs and a bushpig in the Limpopo province, South Africa.
TLDR
The total burdens and species richness of the helminth parasites of artiodactylids in the Limpopo province were consistently low when compared with similar studies on the same species in areas with higher rainfall. Expand
A 12-MONTH SURVEY OF GASTROINTESTINAL HELMINTH INFECTIONS OF CERVIDS KEPT IN TWO ZOOS IN BELGIUM
TLDR
The trimodal pattern of fecal egg counts in herds from the wild animal park, consisting of a small spring rise in June, a peak in October, and a small rise in February, indicates that infective larvae on pastures are the main source of infection. Expand
Anguillicola papernai (Nematoda: Anguillicolidae) and other helminths parasitizing the African longfin eel Anguilla mossambica.
TLDR
A. papernai has been experimentally demonstrated to be capable of reproducing in the European eel and of using European copepods as intermediate hosts and the ultrastructure of adult worms recovered from wild longfin eels was studied. Expand
Age- and sex-based variation in helminth infection of helmeted guineafowl (Numida meleagris) with comments on Swainson's spurfowl (Pternistis swainsonii) and Orange River francolin (Scleroptila
TLDR
Female guineafowl had significantly higher intensities of infection than males, especially concerning M. gallinarum, S. dentigera and N. numida and the nematode Gongylonema congolense, and the recovery of the cestode Retinometra sp. Expand
