Molecular identification of Sarcocystis rileyi sporocysts in red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) and raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) in Lithuania
TLDR
Strong evidence is provided showing that the red fox and the raccoon dog can serve as final hosts of S. rileyi in Europe; however, transmission experiments are needed for the ultimate approval. Expand
Atlas of duck populations in Eastern Europe
This book provides new data on these migratory birds, in a key geographical area for their conservation which provides refuge for the major part of their Palearctic populations.
Identification and Intraspecific Genetic Diversity of Sarcocystis rileyi from Ducks, Anas spp., in Lithuania and Finland
TLDR
According to the sequences of the 18S rRNA gene, 28S r RNA gene, and ITS-1 region, the macrocysts examined from all 30 ducks belonged to Sarcocystis rileyi, which was found in the Eurasian Wigeon and the Common Teal for the first time. Expand
Steller's Eiders Polysticta stelleri wintering in Europe: numbers, distribution and origin
Steller's Eider is among the most northern-living of duck species at all seasons. The recent decline of the species in North America has now increased the awareness of the population wintering inExpand
Coexistence and population genetic structure of the whooper swan Cygnus cygnus and mute swan Cygnus olor in Lithuania and Latvia
Two closely related swan species, the mute swan Cygnus olor and the whooper swan Cygnus cygnus, were formerly allopatric throughout their breeding ranges, but during the last decades a sympatricExpand
Morphological and genetic characterisation of Sarcocystis halieti from the great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo)
TLDR
Based on the molecular analysis, mainly of the ITS1 region, sarcocysts were identified as Sarcocystis halieti, the first Sarcocrystis species characterised in the great cormorant. Expand
MORPHOLOGIC AND GENETIC IDENTIFICATION OF SARCOCYSTIS FULICAE N. SP. (APICOMPLEXA: SARCOCYSTIDAE) FROM THE EURASIAN COOT (FULICA ATRA)
TLDR
According to the phylogenetic and ecologic data, birds of prey, mostly the Western Marsh Harrier (Circus aeruginosus) and the White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), are presumed to be definitive hosts of S. fulicae. Expand
Recent Changes in Distribution of Wintering Populations of Waterfowl Established on the Basis of Lithuanian Ringing Recoveries
Recent changes in the wintering grounds of the Lithuanian breeding population of Mute Swan, Mallard, Common Pochard, and Coot were established by means of the analysis of the long-term ringing dataExpand
Long-term population trends and shifts in distribution of Bewick’s Swans Cygnus columbianus bewickii wintering in northwest Europe
Coordinated international censuses of the Northwest European Bewick’s Swan  Cygnus columbianus bewickii population have been undertaken across the swans’ wintering range at c. 5-year intervals sinceExpand
