Sheep and goat nematode resistance to anthelmintics: pro and cons among breeding management factors.
Although the molecular bases of resistance to anthelmintic families have been intensively studied, the contributing factors for the development of anthelmintic resistance are less well known. ClearExpand

Allopatric combination of Fasciola hepatica and Lymnaea truncatula is more efficient than sympatric ones.
Parasites are capable of rapid evolutionary changes relative to their hosts, due to short life cycle, short generation time, and high fecundity. The direction of the evolution of parasite virulenceExpand

Farm history and breeding management influences on the intensity and specific diversity of nematode infection of dairy goats.
Sixteen dairy-goat farms were investigated in the centre-west of France for nematode infection. The intensity of infection was assessed by means of faecal egg counts and nematode counts at necropsyExpand

Morphological variability in Fasciola hepatica eggs in ruminants, rodents and lagomorphs.
The length and width of 1297 Fasciola hepatica eggs shed in cattle hosts, 337 in sheep and 199 in nutria, were measured from several parts of France. The data were compared with those obtained fromExpand

Species and morphs in the Ostertagiinae: an allozyme study of seven species.
Five enzymes, malate dehydrogenase, lactate dehydrogenase, mannose-phosphate isomerase, glucose-phosphate isomerase and phosphoglucomutase from seven putative species of Ostertagiinae were comparedExpand

Faecal egg counts are representative of digestive-tract strongyle worm burdens in sheep and goats.
The relationship between faecal egg counts and worm burdens in sheep and goats was studied in a large array of environments, from temperate (ewes, lambs or dairy-goats in France) or steppic (ewes inExpand

Evidence for the existence of a sheep and a goat line of Teladorsagia circumcincta (Nematoda)
Abstract Populations of Teladorsagia circumcincta harbored by sheep and goats were investigated by means of isoenzyme electrophoresis. Genetic characterization of 16 natural goat populations wasExpand

Stable and unstable environments influence the genetic diversity of the nematode Teladorsagia circumcincta, a parasite of small ruminants
Abstract Acclimation of animal parasitic nematodes in the laboratory is the result of environmental disturbance; moderate numbers of infective larvae are introduced into and develop in a few naiveExpand

Allozyme variation between laboratory reared and wild populations of Teladorsagia circumcincta.
The technique of allozyme electrophoresis was applied to two laboratory strains (isolated from the center or south-east of France) and wild populations of Teladorsagia circumcincta from the center ofExpand

Sheep and goat lines of Teladorsagia circumcincta (Nematoda): from allozyme to morphological identification.
Previous allozyme analyses demonstrated the existence of Teladorsagia circumcincta sheep and goat lines, based on the presence (goat line) or absence (sheep line) of an allele at the cathodic loci ofExpand
