Helminths of red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in Denmark.
An epidemiological study of helminths in 1040 red foxes collected from various localities in Denmark during 1997-2002 revealed 21 helminth species at autopsy, including nine nematode species, which varied considerably according to geographical locality, season, and year. Expand
Cross-sectional Prevalence of Helminth Infections in Cattle on Traditional, Small-scale and Large-scale Dairy Farms in Iringa District, Tanzania
Results indicated that the type of management, especially the grazing habit, has a significant influence on the prevalence and intensity of GI nematodes and flukes and the variation in the prevalence among management and age groups within systems can be used as an entry point towards rational use of anthelmintics for each management system.

Canine angiostrongylosis: a review
This review gives a concise account of present knowledge of this intriguing parasitosis of Angiostrongylus vasorum in the British Isles and Denmark. Expand
Prevalence and distribution of gastrointestinal helminths and their effects on weight gain in free-range chickens in Central Zambia
The results confirm the higher risk of helminth infections in free-range systems and may explain the deleterious effects in chickens. Expand
Prevalence of fasciolosis in Zambian cattle observed at selected abattoirs with emphasis on age, sex and origin.
Results indicate that Fasciola gigantica infection is an important condition that leads to high liver condemnations and/or trimmings in cattle tendered for slaughter in Zambia. Expand
A helminthological survey of wild red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) from the metropolitan area of Copenhagen.
Sixty-eight red foxes were collected from the metropolitan area of Copenhagen and examined for helminth infections. Standard faecal flotations for intestinal parasites gave the following results:Expand
Epidemiological studies of Fasciola gigantica infections in cattle in the highveld and lowveld communal grazing areas of Zimbabwe.
The snail population was low between December and March and started to increase in April reaching a peak in September/October and the number of juvenile snails peaked between April and August, and anthelmintic treatment should be administered in December/January to control chronic and mature fasciolosis.

Epidemiology of Fasciola gigantica and Amphistomes in Cattle on Traditional, Small-scale Dairy and Large-scale Dairy Farms in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania
The proportion of animals passing fluke eggs increased gradually from the early dry season and peaked at the end of the drySeason and the early part of the rainy season, indicating a significant influence of the type of management on the prevalence of both Fasciola and amphistomes. Expand
Chemical composition and tectonic setting of the Dokhan Volcanic Formation, Eastern Desert, Egypt
Abstract The late Precambrian-Cambrian Dokhan Volcanic Formation represents the youngest component of the basement complex in the Egyptian Eastern Desert. Volcanic and sedimentary rocks predating theExpand
Prescription-only anthelmintics--a questionnaire survey of strategies for surveillance and control of equine strongyles in Denmark.
Results of this survey suggest that limiting equine anthelmintics to prescription-only availability has increased the level of strongyle surveillance, and screening for anthel mintic resistance remains uncommon. Expand
