HELMINTH COMMUNITY STRUCTURE OF SYMPATRIC EASTERN AMERICAN TOAD, BUFO AMERICANUS AMERICANUS, NORTHERN LEOPARD FROG, RANA PIPIENS, AND BLUE-SPOTTED SALAMANDER, AMBYSTOMA LATERALE, FROM SOUTHEASTERN
TLDR
Considering adult helminths, the low species richness and low vagility of caudatans as compared with anurans suggest that local factors may be more important in structuring caudatan helminth communities of salamanders than of anuran hosts. Expand
HELMINTH COMMUNITIES IN FIVE SPECIES OF SYMPATRIC AMPHIBIANS FROM THREE ADJACENT EPHEMERAL PONDS IN SOUTHEASTERN WISCONSIN
TLDR
Representatives of 5 amphibian species, including eastern American toads, wood frogs, spring peepers, blue-spotted salamanders, and central newts, were collected from 3 ephemeral ponds during spring 1994, and they were inspected for helminth parasites. Expand
Seasonal occurrence and community structure of helminth parasites from the eastern American toad, Bufo americanus americanus, from southeastern Wisconsin, U.S.A.
TLDR
A significant correlation existed between wet weight and overall helminth abundance, excluding larval platyhelminths, and a number of species showed seasonal variations in location in the host, and these variations were related to recruitment period. Expand
Effect of season, sex, and age on prevalence of parasitism in dogs from southeastern Wisconsin
TLDR
Intestinal parasites were present in all months of the year, but prevalence was higher in warmer than in colder seasons and multiple infections comprised 27% of positive fecal samples but were not clustered by season. Expand
Giardia cyst wall-specific carbohydrate: evidence for the presence of galactosamine.
TLDR
The lack of detectable levels of glucosamine in Cyst wall hydrolysates, cyst staining by Calcofluor M2R, and N-acetylglucosamine when cysts served as a substrate for exogenous chitinase suggests that the Giardia cyst wall is not composed largely of chit in as previously reported. Expand
Seasonal Changes and Overwintering of Parasites in the Bat, Myotis lucifugus (Le Conte), in a Wisconsin Hibernaculum
During 1979-1980, eight digenetic trematode species, one cestode species and three nematode species were recovered from the little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus) at a southeastern WisconsinExpand
SEASONAL OCCURRENCE, MORPHOLOGY, AND OBSERVATIONS ON THE LIFE HISTORY OF GORDIUS DIFFICILIS (NEMATOMORPHA: GORDIOIDEA) FROM SOUTHEASTERN WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES
TLDR
It is hypothesized that semiaquatic invertebrates may serve as intermediate/paratenic hosts in this system and are preyed upon by terrestrial carabid beetles, thus completing the life cycle. Expand
Observations on Myiasis by the Calliphorid, Bufolucilia silvarum, in the Eastern American Toad (Bufo americanus americanus) from Southeastern Wisconsin
TLDR
The low prevalence observed in this study and other reports of this species from mammalian and bird carcasses indicated that B. silvarum is probably a facultative parasite of toads and other amphibians in the United States. Expand
Survey for Ixodes spp. and Borrelia burgdorferi in southeastern Wisconsin and northeastern Illinois.
TLDR
Forested areas adjacent to Milwaukee, Wis., and Chicago, Ill., were investigated for rodents and ticks infected with Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease, to define whether the midwestern Lyme disease area currently encompasses these large metropolitan centers. Expand
