Saiga antelope (Saiga tatarica) graze extensively on livestock pasture, potentially enabling transmission of a wide range of parasitic helminths between saigas and domestic ruminants. Thirty-six of the 38 species of helminth that have been found in saigas in Kazakhstan in the past have been found also in domestic livestock. We examined 133 saigas culled for meat in autumn 1997, and found three species of cestode and 12 nematodes (nine in the abomasum), but no trematodes or lungworms. The most… Expand
Agricultural restructuring and gastrointestinal parasitism in domestic ruminants on the rangelands of Kazakhstan.
TLDR
It is suggested that cessation of strategic nematode control in the region following post-Soviet agricultural reform was offset by a general reduction in stocking density, such that parasite burdens remained low, and recovery in livestock numbers is likely to lead to increased levels of infection and production loss unless sustainable control strategies are put in place.

Prevalence Of Gastro-intestinal Helminths In Some Ruminant Species And Documentation Of Ethnoveterinary Practices In Cholistan Desert
TLDR
The present study was carried out to highlight the prevalence of gastrointestinal helminths infection among wild and domestic ruminants and documentation of ethnoveterinary practices, spawning their life histories under semi-intensive ecological conditions in Cholistan desert, Pakistan. Expand
Parasitic contamination incidences at inspection of harvested Springbok ( Antidorcas marsupials ) and Gemsbok ( Oryx gazelle ) in Namibia
TLDR
The unusual deep muscle contamination of springbok carcasses by S. kuelzii are significant findings which should be considered during routine meat inspection of harvested wildlife. Expand
Helminth parasites of the Kafue lechwe antelope ( Kobus leche kafuensis): a potential source of infection to domestic animals in the Kafue wetlands of Zambia.
TLDR
The host range of many of the helminths found in the Kafue lechwe is broad and could serve as a potentially stable source of infection to domestic animals such as goats and cattle, and issues concerning livestock management and conservation may arise. Expand
Gastrointestinal Nematode Infections in Antelopes from Morocco: A Coprological Survey
Abstract This study examined the gastrointestinal parasitological status of three endangered Sub-Saharan antelope species (Addax nasomaculatus, Oryx dammah, Gazella dorcas) hosted at Souss-MassaExpand
Helminths of Exotic Even-Toed Ungulates (Artiodactyla) in the Askania-Nova Biosphere Reserve, Ukraine
TLDR
Reduction in the species diversity and alteration of the parasite community structures in these exotic ungulates kept in the Askania-Nova Reserve compared to their natural habitats are indicated. Expand
Parasite transmission in a migratory multiple host system
TLDR
A transmission model was devised for trichostrongyloid nematodes of saiga antelopes and domestic sheep in Kazakhstan and provides a mechanistic explanation for its predictions, which will assist hypothesis formation and further the epidemiological basis of efforts to control parasite transmission between wildlife and livestock in both directions.

Intestinal Parasites in the Critically Endangered Przewalski's Gazelle (Procapra przewalskii) in China, with the Description of a New Species of Eimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae)
TLDR
A flotation technique was used to survey fecal samples from 27 Przewalski's gazelles for intestinal parasites to report parasites belonging to two nematode (Nematodirus, Marshallagia) genera and one apicomplexan (Eimeria) genus; one of the latter was a new species from the critically endangered Przwalski’s gazelle. Expand
Some larval morphological characteristics of Camelostrongylus mentulatus and Nematodirus spathiger
TLDR
This study tried to provide certain morphological elements that will help to recognize the L3 larvae of Camelostrongylus mentulatus and Nematodirus spathiger that could parasite either domestic or wild ruminants, and it is believed that this study will contribute to the establishment of morphological identification keys especially for parasitic nematodes of wild rulerants.

Assessing risks of disease transmission between wildlife and livestock : The Saiga antelope as a case study
TLDR
The use of transmis-sion models are described to assess the risk of disease transfer across the wildlife–livestock boundary, and to target control strategies appropriately, on pathogens of the Saiga antelope and domestic ruminants in Central Asia. Expand

Infectious diseases of saiga antelopes and domestic livestock in Kazakhstan
TLDR
This study combines an investigation of the ecology of the saiga antelope (Saiga tatarica) and the epidemiology of diseases shared by saigas and domestic livestock to suggest that FMD is not endemic in saiga, and that thesaiga population is not a reservoir of infection for domestic livestock. Expand
Life-history strategies and population dynamics of abomasal nematodes in Svalbard reindeer (Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus)
TLDR
The extent to which selection has led to similar life-history strategies in the 3 most numerous trichostrongyle species is investigated, and one of the taxa was most abundant and had its highest egg output in the winter. Expand
FACTORS AFFECTING THE HELMINTH COMMUNITY STRUCTURE OF ADULT COLLARED PECCARIES IN SOUTHERN TEXAS
TLDR
The hypothesis that heterogeneity within theHost population, rather than across the collective host population, is the main factor generating overdispersion in natural parasite populations was not confirmed for the three common species of helminths. Expand
The ecology and management of the Saiga antelope in Kazakhstan
The ecology and management of the Saiga antelope Saiga tatarica tatarica, a nomadic herding species of the desert, semi-desert and steppe ecosystems of Central Asia, are reviewed. The range area andExpand
EFFECTS OF SEASON AND PHYSICAL CONDITION ON THE GASTROINTESTINAL HELMINTH COMMUNITY OF WHITE-TAILED DEER FROM THE TEXAS EDWARDS PLATEAU
Eighty-six adult female white-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus (Zimmermann), collected over a 12-mo period in the Texas Edwards Plateau, harbored six species of nematodes (Haemonchus contortus,Expand
The role of nematode parasites in Soay sheep (Ovis aries L.) mortality during a population crash.
TLDR
In early 1989, two-thirds of the Soay sheep population on St Kilda died over 12 weeks, with emaciated carcasses and considerable nematode burdens, with protein-energy malnutrition as the probable cause of death. Expand
Modelling the transmission dynamics of Echinococcus granulosus in dogs in rural Kazakhstan
TLDR
The results indicated that there were 2 distinct populations of dogs in rural Kazakhstan which had significantly different exposures to E. granulosus and there was significant herd immunity in the dog at this infection pressure. Expand
Modelling the transmission dynamics of Echinococcus granulosus in sheep and cattle in Kazakhstan.
TLDR
There was no evidence of parasite-induced immunity in sheep or cattle in Kazakhstan due to natural infection, and the highest abundance and prevalence were seen in the oldest age classes of animals. Expand
