Abstract: We sampled 339 fecal samples, 296 intestines, and 82 lungs from 371 lynx hunted during the 2010–2011 season in Finland. The fecal samples were analyzed for endoparasites by a quantitative flotation method, and helminths from intestines were studied morphologically, while lungs were investigated for pulmonary parasites. From fecal samples, eggs and oocysts of at least 6 different endoparasite species were identified, with a mean of 1.5 (range 0–4) parasite species per host. In the… 

New Insights into Gastrointestinal and Pulmonary Parasitofauna of Wild Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) in the Harz Mountains of Germany

TLDR
The protozoan and helminth fauna of free-ranging Eurasian lynx of the Harz population with emphasis on zoonotic parasites is investigated, providing insights in the occurrence of zooanthroponotically relevant metazoan and protozoans species in free- ranging lynx.

Molecular identification of Taenia spp. in the Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) from Finland

TLDR
The authors' analyses suggest that these distinct taeniid tapeworms represent a putative new species of Taenia, the only currently recognized definitive host is L. lynx and the intermediate host is unknown.

High Toxocara cati prevalence in wild, free-ranging Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) in Finland, 1999–2015

Update of the helminth fauna in Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) in Poland

TLDR
Four species of cestodes were found for the first time in Eurasian lynx from Poland and three previously reported species of nematodes—Ancylostoma tubaeforme, Toxascaris leonina, and Toxocara cati—were confirmed.

Troglostrongylus brevior in an Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) from Bosnia and Herzegovina

TLDR
The first record of T. brevior in the Eurasian lynx and the associated host lung pathology is described, given its pathogenic potential and the lack of data on troglostrongylosis in lynx populations.

First confirmed case of Alaria alata mesocercaria in Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) hunted in Latvia

TLDR
The findings suggest that the Eurasian lynx may serve both as paratenic and definitive host for A. alata, and mesocercariae infection in Eurasia lynx was detected for the first time.

Checklist of tapeworms (Platyhelminthes, Cestoda) of vertebrates in Finland

TLDR
The main pattern emerging from the present data is the seemingly unexplained absence in (northern) Fennoscandia of several mammalian tapeworms that otherwise have extensive distributions in the Holarctic region or in Eurasia, including the northern regions.

Endoparasites of Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) (Linnaeus, 1758) from an enclosure of Western Pomeranian Nature Society in Jablonowo

TLDR
Research show that wild cats in captivity are particularly exposed on parasitic infections and demand regular examination and that the first report of C. felis infection in lynx from Poland is presented.

New insights into the distribution of cardio-pulmonary nematodes in road-killed wild felids from Romania

TLDR
The present study expanded the epidemiological knowledge on felid cardiopulmonary nematodes in Romania by confirming the presence of A. abstrusus in wildcats and a patent infection with T. brevior in Eurasian lynx.

Helminth Fauna of Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx) in Estonia

TLDR
Thirty-seven carcasses of Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) collected and examined in Estonia during 1999–2001 had helminths, and older males had a greater number of species of helminth than did younger lynx.

Coprological Study on Helminth Fauna in Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx) From the Białowieża Primeval Forest in Eastern Poland

TLDR
A statistical comparison of the 2 techniques used to isolate eggs, i.e., flotation and sedimentation, indicates that sedimentation was more effective than flotation in isolating eggs in lynx.

Helminth parasites of the endangered Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus) and sympatric carnivores

TLDR
Feral cats may be a reservoir for hookworms and other helminths affecting the Iberian lynx, and mongooses and genets may not play a role in the epidemiology of these species.

Preliminary Results on the Helminthofauna of the Eurasian Lynx (Lynx Lynx) in Latvia

TLDR
Preliminary data on the helminthofauna of the Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) in Latvia are presented and six helminths species belonging to the following taxonomic groups were found.

A survey of helminths in stray cats from Copenhagen with ecological aspects

TLDR
The prevalence ofToxocara cati was found to be independent of time of collection and the sex and habitat of the cats and identical in cats with or without Taenia, indicating that paratenic hosts do not play an important epizootiological role in the transmission of T. cati.

ENDOPARASITES OF HARES (LEPUS TIMIDUS L. AND L. EUROPAEUS PALLAS) IN FINLAND

TLDR
The management technique of winter-feeding did not increase significantly the percentage of infected animals and the absence of cysticerci of Taenia pisiformis Bloch, 1780 in this survey may be a reflection of improved hygiene practices instituted by hunters.

Keys to the cestode parasites of vertebrates.

TLDR
This book provides keys to enable specialists and non-specialists to identify cestodes to generic level and is a standard work on tapeworm identification and will be indispensable for parasitologists.

CAUSES OF MORTALITY IN REINTRODUCED EURASIAN LYNX IN SWITZERLAND

TLDR
It is hypothesized that even a few cases of infections in a small population like the lynx, which are additionally threatened by noninfectious causes, may threaten the long term survival of the population.

THE COMPARATIVE BIOLOGY OF PARASITE SPECIES DIVERSITY: INTERNAL HELMINTHS OF FRESHWATER FISH

TLDR
Most of the ecological covariance of helminth diversity is displayed at rather high taxonomic levels, perhaps because of lag between host evolution and parasite adaptation.

Nematode parasites of vertebrates: their development and transmission. 2nd edition. Introduction.

The main aim of this book is to summarise and synthesize our knowledge of the main features of the development and transmission of parasitic nematodes of vertebrates, and to place this information
