Gastrointestinal parasites in Chinstrap Penguins from Deception Island, South Shetlands, Antarctica
TLDR
The low parasite richness observed could be related to the stenophagic and pelagic diet of the host species and False negatives were found in coprological studies.
Age-Related Differences in the Gastrointestinal Microbiota of Chinstrap Penguins (Pygoscelis antarctica)
TLDR
It is suggested that environmental factors have a higher importance than genetic factors in the microbiota composition of chicks and surprisingly large differences in community composition with other Antarctic penguins including the congeneric Adélie and Gentoo penguins.
Helminths of the kelp gull, Larus dominicanus, from the northern Patagonian coast
TLDR
The helminth community of L. dominicanus on the Peninsula Valdés coast seems to be richer than those reported by previous authors in other localities in Argentina, possibly due to a greater diversity in prey items available.
Seabird ticks (Ixodes uriae) distribution along the Antarctic Peninsula
TLDR
Ticks were found beneath stones close to penguin rookeries of chinstrap, gentoo and adelie penguin, although no individuals were found parasitized and ticks are probably absent in the south.
FURTHER STUDY OF CONTRACAECUM PELAGICUM (NEMATODA: ANISAKIDAE) IN SPHENISCUS MAGELLANICUS (AVES: SPHENISCIDAE) FROM ARGENTINEAN COASTS
TLDR
The first detailed description of C. pelagicum adults from S. magellanicus is presented and fourth-stage larvae that parasitized both hosts were assigned to a nondeterminated Contracaecum species.
Distribution of metals and trace elements in adult and juvenile penguins from the Antarctic Peninsula area
TLDR
The obtained results showed that accumulation and magnification of several elements can be occurring, so that Cd and Se reached levels potentially toxic in some specimens.
A survey of larval digeneans in the commonest intertidal snails from Northern Patagonian coast, Argentina
TLDR
Six species of digenean parasitising four snail species were found; four of them were registered for first time: Maritrema sp.
Development from Metacercaria to Adult of a New Species of Maritrema (Digenea: Microphallidae) Parasitic in the Kelp Gull, Larus dominicanus, from the Patagonian Coast, Argentina
TLDR
This is the first report of a Maritrema species in Patagonia and the southernmost record for the genus and suggests that the crab C. altimanus acts as a second intermediate host of M. madrynensis n.
Gastrointestinal helminths of Gentoo penguins (Pygoscelis papua) from Stranger Point, 25 de Mayo/King George Island, Antarctica
TLDR
The low parasite richness observed could be related to the stenophagic and pelagic diet of this host species which feeds almost exclusively on krill.
