  volume={35 1-3},
From 1987 to 1993, 89 wolves (Canis lupus) collected throughout the whole Italian range were examined for intestinal helminth parasites. Twelve species were found, including 5 nematodes (Uncinaria stenocephala, Toxocara canis, Ancylostoma caninum, Trichuris vulpis and Toxascaris leonina) and 7 cestodes (Echinococcus granulosus, Taenia hydatigena, T. multiceps, T. pisiformis, T. ovis, Mesocestoides lineatus and Dipylidium caninum). No significant differences were detected between sexes. T. canis… Expand
Intestinal macro- and microparasites of wolves (Canis lupus L.) from north-eastern Poland recovered by coprological study.
Wolf scats collected during ecological studies in Mazury lake district in NE Poland were analysed for intestinal micro- and macroparasites and five nematode species were identified, with the most prevalent parasite T. vulpis being T. canis. Expand
Helminth infections in faecal samples of wolves Canis lupus L. from the western Beskidy Mountains in southern Poland
Grey wolf faeces collected between 2002 and 2004 from two areas in the western Beskidy Mts (south Poland) and the results are compared with the helminth fauna of other wolf populations in Europe. Expand
Intestinal helminth parasites of the grey wolf (Canis lupus L.) in Serbia.
The grey wolf (Canis lupus L.) is the most widespread large carnivore in Europe with large populations in the Eastern part of Europe and the Balkan Peninsula and Taenia (syn. Hydatigera) taeniaeformis has been registered for the first time in a wolf from Europe. Expand
Ecological analyses of the intestinal helminth communities of the wolf, Canis lupus, in Spain.
The analysis of interspecific relationships between infracommunities shows that negative associations are more numerous than positive associations, especially for core and secondary species. Expand
Helminth parasites of the red fox Vulpes vulpes (L., 1758) and the wolf Canis lupus italicus Altobello, 1921 in Emilia-Romagna, Italy
It is shown that foxes are reservoir hosts of zoonotic parasites, including A. alata, a rare digenean trematode in the Italian paeninsula, which is compared with those of other surveys on helminths of wild canids carried out in Italy and other European countries. Expand
A faecal analysis of helminth infections in wild and captive wolves, Canis lupus L., in Poland
Differences were observed in the prevalence and composition of helminth fauna between reared and wild grey wolves and the results are compared with those from studies within Poland and elsewhere in Europe. Expand
Correlates of parasites and pseudoparasites in wolves (Canis lupus) across continents: A comparison among Yellowstone (USA), Abruzzo (IT) and Mercantour (FR) national parks
Factors structuring the helminth and protozoan infections of wolves (Canis lupus) by using coprological analyses illustrated the importance of the ecological factors such as occurrence of free-ranging dogs, diet composition and wolf density, as well as the ancestry of the wolf populations, in shaping parasite-wolf communities.

Gastrointestinal helminths of gray wolves (Canis lupus lupus) from Sweden
The prevalence of gastrointestinal helminths of gray wolves hunted on a limited license as a part of a wildlife management program is described, suggesting that the parasite infestation had no negative impact on the general health of the examined wolves. Expand
Gastrointestinal helminths of wolves (Canis lupus Linnaeus, 1758) in Piedmont, north-western Italy.
Free-ranging grey wolves (Canis lupus), which are presently recolonizing Italy, can be parasitized by a diversity of helminths, but have rarely been subject to studies of their parasites. Therefore,Expand
Helminth Fauna in Captive European Gray Wolves (Canis lupus lupus) in Germany
Investigation of endoparasites in captive European gray wolves using coproscopical methods found no statistically significant effect of season was found, whereas anthelmintic treatment negatively affected Ancylostomatidae egg excretion, and routine anthel Mintic treatment of captive wolves should be recommended.
