Topics from this paper

Mitochondrial and nuclear ribosomal DNA dataset supports that Paramphistomum leydeni (Trematoda: Digenea) is a distinct rumen fluke species
Results of the present study support the proposal that P. leydeni and P. cervi represent two distinct valid species and provide plentiful resources of mitochondrial markers, which can be combined with nuclear markers, for further comparative studies of the biology of P. LEYDeni and its congeners. Expand
Identity of rumen fluke in deer
Considering the comparatively low egg burdens observed in this study, it is unlikely that deer represent a significant source of infection for Irish livestock. Expand
