Helminth communities of two sympatric skinks (Mabuya agilis and Mabuya macrorhyncha) from two "restinga" habitats in southeastern Brazil.
The helminth fauna of two sympatric congeneric skinks from two distinct "restinga" habitats in southeastern Brazil were studied and the parasite faunas were qualitatively very similar among species and/or localities, but quantitative similarities were more varied.
Nematode parasites of marsupials and small rodents from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Nematodes from opossums and rodents captured in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil were studied and Stilestrongylus aculeata was referred for the first time in Akodon cursor.
Helminths of the exotic lizard Hemidactylus mabouia from a rock outcrop area in southeastern Brazil
TheHelminth assemblage of the H. mabouia population appears to have been entirely acquired by this exotic gecko from the local helminth species pool, rather than possessing any species from the parasite faunas of the original African populations.
A survey of new host records for nematodes from mammals deposited in the Helminthological Collection of the Oswaldo Cruz Institute (CHIOC)
In this survey 1,500 samples of nematodes, representing 151 species, distributed in 20 superfamilies, parasitizing Brazilian mammals and deposited between 1916-1963 in the CHIOC were studied.
Parasitism by helminths in Eurolophosaurus nanuzae (Lacertilia: Tropiduridae) in an area of rocky outcrops in Minas Gerais State, Southeastern Brazil
The helminth fauna of the digestive tract of the lizard, Eurolophosaurus nanuzae, from the Serra do Cipo, Minas Gerais State, Brazil was studied for sexual, ontogenetic, and seasonal differences in prevalence and intensity of infection.
Helmintos de tropidurus (Lacertilia, Iguanidae) da coleção helmintológica do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz
Analise quantitativa e qualitativa dos helmintos coletados em 245 necropsias de lagartos pertencentes as especies Tropidurus torquatus (Wied) e Tropidurus spinulosus (Cope) e que se encontram
Helminth parasites of conventionally maintained laboratory mice.
The scope of this investigation has been widened to also include morphometric data on the parasites, to further simplify their identification, since the presence of helminths in laboratory animals is regarded as a restricting factor for the proper attainment of experimental protocols.
Nematode infection patterns in four sympatric lizards from a restinga habitat (Jurubatiba) in Rio de Janeiro state, southeastern Brazil
Tropidurus torquatus had the richest (8 species) and most diverse nematode fauna, whereas that of C. littoralis was the poorest (2species) and less diverse.
Helminths infecting the parthenogenetic whiptail lizard Cnemidophorus nativo in a restinga habitat of Bahia State, Brazil.
A sample of 101 specimens of the unisexual whiptail lizard Cnemidophorus nativo from a coastal site in Bahia State, Brazil were examined for the presence of endoparasites and infection rates were neither significantly influenced by host body size nor by environmental factors.
