Helminths in the wolf, Canis lupus, from north-western Spain.
TLDR
The helminth fauna of Spanish wolves is compared with that of other European wolf populations, and Angiostrongylus vasorum represents a new host record for wolves. Expand
Geographical variation in blood parasites in feral pigeons: the role of vectors.
TLDR
Observational and experimental evidence supports the view that vector abundance is the major factor influencing the spatial variation in prevalence of H. columbae in pigeons. Expand
The Helminth Community of the Red Fox, Vulpes Vulpes , In Dunas de Mira (Portugal) and its effect on host condition
TLDR
The analysis of 62 foxes collected by hunters between 2000 and 2006 revealed that the helminth community of the red fox in Dunas de Mira is composed by 20 species, and the component species are discussed considering the redfox diet in the study area, their relationship with a lowered host condition and their possible transmission to humans. Expand
Helminth parasites of the eurasian badger (Meles meles L.) in Spain: a biogeographic approach
TLDR
Helminthological differences between areas may result from the badger diet, abiotic factors and biocenosis present in each biogeographic area. Expand
SPERMIOGENESIS AND SPERMATOZOON ULTRASTRUCTURE OF THE CRANIAL DIGENEAN TROGLOTREMA ACUTUM (LEUCKART, 1842)
TLDR
Ultrastructure of spermiogenesis and the main characters of the mature spermatozoon of Troglotrema acutum are described by means of transmission electron microscopy and are compared with other digenean species previously studied. Expand
Ecological analyses of the intestinal helminth communities of the wolf, Canis lupus, in Spain.
TLDR
The analysis of interspecific relationships between infracommunities shows that negative associations are more numerous than positive associations, especially for core and secondary species. Expand
Ultrastructural study of spermiogenesis and the spermatozoon in Catenotaenia pusilla, an intestinal parasite of Mus musculus
TLDR
The ultrastructure of spermiogenesis and the mature spermatozoon inCatenotaenia pusilla (Cestoda: Catenotaeniidae) is described and the nucleus is kidney- to horseshoe-shaped in cross section. Expand
Helminth fauna of the Iberian lynx, Lynx pardinus.
TLDR
The helminth fauna in Iberian lynx is compared with that of L. canadensis and L. rufus in America, and for L. lynx in Eurasia, and some geographical, historical and dietary factors are discussed. Expand
Ecological aspects influencing the helminth community of the wood mouse Apodemus sylvaticus in Dunas de Mira, Portugal
TLDR
The first extensive data on the helminth community of the wood mouse Apodemus sylvaticus in a coastal sand dune area in Portugal is presented, with some differences in prevalence and mean intensity values found in relation to year, habitat and season. Expand
Parasite mediated mortality and host immune response explain age-related differences in blood parasitism in birds
TLDR
The intensity of blood parasites in young pigeons, but not in adults, decreased over time so dramatically that by the time they had become adults their intensities were indistinguishable from that typically seen in adults. Expand
