Helminth community structure of the oven frog Leptodactylus latinasus (Anura, Leptodactylidae) from Corrientes, Argentina
All parasite helminth species showed an aggregated pattern of distribution and the most infected organs were kidneys, small intestine, large intestine and pharyngeal zone and the host body size was important in determining the parasites abundance of G. repandum. Expand
SPECIES AFFINITY AND INFRACOMMUNITY ORDINATION OF HELMINTHS OF LEPTODACTYLUS CHAQUENSIS (ANURA: LEPTODACTYLIDAE) IN TWO CONTRASTING ENVIRONMENTS FROM NORTHEASTERN ARGENTINA
The body size of the host was the important factor in determining parasite richness and the mean richness, mean diversity, and evenness of helminths were significantly different between the habitats (P < 0.05). Expand
07. Trophic, reproductive and parasitological aspects of the ecology of Leptodactylus chaquensis (Anura: Leptodactylidae) in Argentina
The trophic niche breadth and the habitats where the Cei's white-lipped frog is living structured the parasite community. Expand
Ecological aspects of diet, reproduction, and parasitism of Pseudopaludicola boliviana (Anura, Leptodactylidae) from Corrientes, Argentina
The main objectives of this paper were to update the distribution range of Pseudopaludicola boliviana in Argentina, to determine its diet composition and the feeding patterns, to analyze some… Expand
Population dynamics of planorbid snails from a lenitic biotope in northeastern Argentina. Larval trematodes of Biomphalaria occidentalis and analysis of their prevalence and seasonality
Nematode parasites of two anuran species Rhinella schneideri (Bufonidae) and Scinax acuminatus (Hylidae) from Corrientes, Argentina.
The nematological fauna of most anuran species from Corrientes province, north of Argentina; has not been studied and nematode species found in Rhinella schneideri and Scinax acuminatus are reported for the first time. Expand

This is the first instance of a species of that genus parasitizing a mollusc and the host snail was collected from a lenitic biotope belonging to the Riachuelo basin, Argentina during 1985-1986. Expand
Helminth community structure in the Argentinean bufonid Melanophryniscus klappenbachi: importance of habitat use and season
Results showed that diets and mobility of the host and the local microhabitat conditions play an important role in parasitic infections of toads, and that host body size was the main factor in determining the infrapopulation structure of helminth parasites. Expand
Coexistence of helminth species in Lysapsus limellus (Anura: Pseudidae) from an Argentinean subtropical area: influence of biotic and abiotic factors
The main goals of this study were to investigate the relationships between pond type, season, study time, frog body size, and frog sex and the presence-absence and counts of helminth parasite species in the frog host, L. limellus, and to examine the co-occurrence of the different parasites in thefrog host in terms of the structure, assembly, and dynamics of the helminths infracommunity.

Parasite and reproductive features of Scinax nasicus (Anura: Hylidae) from a South American subtropical area.
From February 2002 to December 2004, the helminth parasite fauna and reproductive features of the frog Scinax nasicus were studied from Corrientes city, Prov...
