The population dynamics of concurrent infections of Syphacia obvelata and Aspiculuris tetraptera (Nematoda) in laboratory mice were investigated under conditions of constant re-exposure over periods of 56 and 115 days. The results indicate that A. tetraptera burdens equilibrate at a higher level than S. obvelata burdens and that both parasites become aggregated in the mouse population. Parasite burdens were higher following short-term (7 day) exposure of uninfected tracer mice to both parasites… CONTINUE READING
