A total of 380 scrub hares (Lepus saxatilis) from 5 localities, ranging from the north-eastern Transvaal to the eastern and the south-western Cape Province of South Africa, were examined for fleas and lice. Ctenocephalides felis damarensis was almost exclusively responsible for the flea infestations on hares at 4 of the 5 sites. At 4 localities the prevalence and abundance of this flea reached peaks between August and October and declined thereafter to their lowest levels between February and… Expand
Fleas, lice and mites on scrub hares (Lepus saxatilis) in northern and eastern Transvaal and in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
TLDR
Ctenocephalides felis damarensis, the only flea recovered, reached peak burdens on the hares at each locality during late winter or spring, and juvenile hares harboured significantly fewer fleas than did adult animals. Expand
Parasites of South African wildlife. XV. Helminths of scrub hares, Lepus saxatilis in the Kruger National Park.
TLDR
With the exception of D. vlakhaasi, all the helminths recovered in this study represent new records for scrub hares in South Africa. Expand
Parasites of domestic and wild animals in South Africa. XLIV. Fleas (Insecta: Siphonaptera: Pulicidae) collected from 15 carnivore species.
Fleas were collected from 61 wild carnivores belonging to 13 species in various nature reserves and on farms, two feral domestic cats in a nature reserve and a domestic dog in the city ofExpand
Parasites of domestic and wild animals in South Africa. XXXVI. Arthropod parasites of yellow mongooses, Cynictis penicillata (G. Cuvier, 1829).
TLDR
Eighty yellow mongooses, Cynictis penicillata, from five localities in South Africa were examined for arthropod parasites and a single biting louse species was recovered and it was the most prevalent ectoparasite on the mongoose. Expand
HAEMODIPSUS BRACHYLAGI N. SP. (PHTHIRAPTERA: ANOPLURA: POLYPLACIDAE), A NEW SUCKING LOUSE FROM THE PYGMY RABBIT IN NEVADA
TLDR
Morphological features that differentiate the new species from other known species of Haemodipsus are elucidated, and an identification key to both sexes of the 3 species now known from this genus in North America is included. Expand
EPIFAUNISTIC ARTHROPOD PARASITES OF THE FOUR-STRIPED MOUSE, RHABDOMYS PUMILIO, IN THE WESTERN CAPE PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA
TLDR
The aims of the study were to quantify the species richness, prevalence, and relative mean intensity of infestation of epifaunistic arthropod species associated with R. pumilio, and to determine temporal variations in the mean abundance of the parasitic arthropods. Expand
Ectoparasites of hares (Lepus europaeus Pallas) in Konya Province, Turkey
TLDR
Ectoparasites of rabbits and hares in Manitoba, Canada, with observations on age-specific dispersal in Haemodipsus setoni (Phthiraptera: Anoplura: Polyplacidae). Expand

  • 2012
TLDR
This study was carried out to detect lice species found on hares in the Konya province of Turkey and found H. leporis was found on L. europaeus for the first time in Turkey, and it was also detected on this host species for theFirst time throughout the world. Expand
Ectoparasites of rabbits and hares in Manitoba, Canada, with observations on age-specific dispersal in Haemodipsus setoni (Phthiraptera: Anoplura: Polyplacidae)
TLDR
It appears that dispersal from parents to offspring is overwhelmingly achieved by adult lice, and the most abundant ectoparasite on cottontails was the sucking louse, Haemodipsus setoni Ewing, recorded from this host for the first time. Expand
Functional and Evolutionary Ecology of Fleas: A Model for Ecological Parasitology
TLDR
This book provides an in-depth case study of a host—parasite system, demonstrating how fleas can be used as a model taxon for testing ecological and evolutionary hypotheses. Expand
