One hundred twenty-seven bullfrogs, Rana catesbeiana, and 120 green frogs, Rana clamitans, collected in July and August 1987 from Turkey Marsh, Michigan, were examined for helminths. Of the 16 helminth species found, Falcaustra catesbeianae had the highest prevalence and mean intensity in bullfrogs. In green frogs, Megalodiscus temperatus had the highest prevalence and Haematoloechus parviplexus had the highest mean intensity. Taxonomically, 1,030 (30.5%) trematodes and 2,348 (69.5%) nematodes… 
HELMINTH COMMUNITIES OF GREEN FROGS RANA CLAMITANS LATREILLE, FROM SOUTHWESTERN MICHIGAN
TLDR
Adult frogs had significantly higher or higher values than did juveniles at each location, and the differences in several helminth community measures in green frogs among locations stress the importance of local ecological conditions on helminths community structure.
HELMINTH COMMUNITIES IN BULLFROGS (RANA CATESBEIANA), GREEN FROGS (RANA CLAMITANS), AND LEOPARD FROGS (RANA PIPIENS) FROM NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA
TLDR
Twenty-three helminth species were identified from bullfrogs, Rana catesbeiana, green frogs, R. clamitans, and leopard frogs, in New Brunswick; in green frogs and le Leopard frogs, richness and abundance were greatest in adults; in bull frogs, juveniles showed the greatest richness and richness.
Helminth infestation of the moor frog (Rana arvalis Nilsson, 1842) and the Siberian tree frog (Rana amurensis Boulenger, 1886) in Western Siberia
TLDR
The overall rates of helminth infestation have been the same in the moor frog and the Siberian tree frog, but differences in infestation rates of certain species by helminths were due to the biological peculiarities of the frog species.
HELMINTH INFRACOMMUNITIES OF RANA VAILLANTI BROCCHI (ANURA: RANIDAE) IN LOS TUXTLAS, VERACRUZ, MEXICO
TLDR
Diversity values are the highest recorded to date in species of Rana, and patterns of helminth infracommunity richness and diversity were similar to those previously observed in amphibians.
Helminths of Notophthalmus viridescens (Caudata: Salamandridae) from 118th Pond, Michigan, U.S.A
TLDR
The helminth fauna of newts from 118th Pond is not host specific because these 5 helminths species also infected green frogs in an earlier study from this pond.
HELMINTH COMMUNITIES IN FIVE SPECIES OF SYMPATRIC AMPHIBIANS FROM THREE ADJACENT EPHEMERAL PONDS IN SOUTHEASTERN WISCONSIN
TLDR
Representatives of 5 amphibian species, including eastern American toads, wood frogs, spring peepers, blue-spotted salamanders, and central newts, were collected from 3 ephemeral ponds during spring 1994, and they were inspected for helminth parasites.
Helminth Infracommunities of the Montezuma's Frog Lithobates montezumae (Anura: Ranidae) in the Nearctic–Neotropical Transition Zone of Mexico
TLDR
The use of aquatic habits by this anuran species likely explains why the composition of their helminth infracommunities was mainly constituted of helminths acquired in this environment (5 of 6 species), and the heterogeneity of their taxonomic composition and abundance of helmineth species indicate the unpredictable nature of these host–parasite associations.
Parasites of the Mink Frog (Rana septentrionalis) from Minnesota, U.S.A
TLDR
The survey presented here represents the second known helminth survey of mink frogs conducted in North America and finds echinostomatid metacercariae in the kidneys of frogs were the most common parasites found, infecting 100% of the frogs and consisting of about 90% of allHelminth individuals recovered.
Helminth Parasites of the Smooth-Backed Frog, Lithobates psilonota (Amphibia: Ranidae), from Western Mexico
TLDR
The helminth fauna of L. psilonota shows a Nearctic influence coupled with a high percentage of endemic species that suggests an important coevolutionary component in the history of the association of this group of frogs and their helminths.
Helminth infracommunities of the maculated toad Amietophrynus regularis (Anura: Bufonidae) from Ismailia, Egypt.
TLDR
This study indicated that the helminth community of A. regularis was depauperate, and revealed that season, host sex, and age played significant roles in determining infracommunity species richness.

HELMINTH INFRACOMMUNITIES OF THE NEWT, NOTOPHTHALMUS VIRIDESCENS, FROM TURKEY MARSH, MICHIGAN
TLDR
Although newts are opportunistic predators with a broad prey base, this appears not to play a major role in structuring the helminth infracommunity, and significant correlations existed between newt length and Brillouin's index, evenness, species richness, and Helminth intensity.
Helminth Parasites of Sympatric Salamanders: Ecological Concepts at Infracommunity, Component and Compound Community Levels
TLDR
Patterns of prevalence and intensity of infection revealed that salamander helminth helminths were, in general, not host specific and their distributions can be correlated with host size, diet and habitat preferences.

TLDR
The diet of the green frog was strongly influenced by the habitat and by seasonal variations in the availability of prey organisms.

TLDR
Mother and daughter sporocysts and xiphidiocercariae of Haematoloechus coloradensis develop in the snail, Physa virgata, and migrate into the lungs where they mature.
Helminth communities of amphibians and reptiles: comparative approaches to understanding patterns and processes
TLDR
Recognition of three general features of parasite communities have contributed to the change in focus and communities of specialist organisms, such as parasites, might be structured in fundamentally different ways from generalist organisms.
Patterns in helminth communities: why are birds and fish different?
TLDR
Examining helminth diversity in a series of hosts concludes that there are fundamental differences between the communities of helminths in fish and bird hosts and provides explanations for the observed differences.

TLDR
The results support the general importance of predation in structuring freshwater communities and document an important mode of population regulation operating during the aquatic larval phase of the odonate complex life cycle.

TLDR
The 102 hosts used in this study were collected during April through September, 1951, from four stations in the vicinity of Ann Arbor, viz., ponds along Zeeb Road, Whitmore Lake, Flemming Creek, and the Huron River.
