During 2012–2014 up to 286 birds of the orders Falconiformes (5 species), Accipitriformes (11 species), and Strigiformes (7 species) were examined for trematodes and this represents the first detailed study in Slovakia. A total of 12 trematode species belonging to the families Diplostomidae, Cyathocotylidae, Strigeidae, and Opisthorchiidae were identified. Rare infections were found in falcons where only two species (40 %) and three of 85 examined birds (3.5 %) were infected with a low range of… 

New data on helminth fauna of birds of prey (Falconiformes, Accipitriformes, Strigiformes) in the Slovak Republic

The most frequent helminth species infecting diurnal birds of prey was Strigea falconis, and the acanthocephalan Centrorhynchus aluconis was identified in four different host species of the Strigiformes order.

Study of the helminth fauna in eagle owl (Bubo bubo) in the south of Spain

Helminth fauna of birds of prey (Strigiformes: Strigidae, Tytonidae) in the Non-Black Earth Region of the Russian Federation

The purpose of the research is studying helminths of carnivorous birds of the order of owls found in the Non-Black Earth Region of the Russian Federation and new hosts were identified for the following helminth species: the barn owl, short-eared owl and little owl for the trematode N. attenuatum, the Ural owl andlittle owl for S. falconis, the long-eared Owl for the nematode S. inermis.

Grass Snakes (Natrix natrix) as a Reservoir of Alaria alata and Other Parasites

The obtained results indicate that grass snakes are an excellent vector of A. alata and may be a potential source of infection for mammals, e.g., wild boars and foxes, which results in an increased risk of alariosis for consumers of raw or undercooked game meat.

Long-term dynamics of trematode infections in common birds that use farmlands as their feeding habitats

The analysis of six unrelated common bird species that use farmlands as their feeding habitats revealed a previously unreported collapse of previously dominant trematode species.

New data on Neodiplostomum americanum Chandler and Rausch, 1947 (Digenea: Diplostomidae), in the Great Horned Owl Bubo virginianus Gmelin, 1788 and the Eastern Screech Owl Megascops asio Linnaeus, 1758 in Mississippi, USA

Preliminary phylogenetic analysis of the genus based on cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 gene sequence data supports the placement of N. americanum within a discrete phylogroup of the family Diplostomidae.

Parasites, Bacteria, and Associated Pathological Changes in the Digestive System of Diurnal and Nocturnal Raptors in Central Italy

The results obtained showed that both parasites and bacteria may cause severe lesions in the digestive system of diurnal and nocturnal raptors; parasites andacteria may concur in causing these lesions.
