The brush-tailed rock-wallaby (Petrogale penicillata) is listed as vulnerable on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. Parasitic diseases have been proposed as possible contributing factors to the decline of the species, but very little is known about the effects of parasites on this host. This study determined the antibody prevalence of the protist Toxoplasma gondii in a wild brush-tailed rock-wallaby population from three neighboring… Expand
Quantifying parasite presence in relation to biological parameters of harbour porpoises Phocoena phocoena stranded on the Dutch coast.
TLDR
The results of this study can be used as a baseline for assessing parasite presence in harbour porpoises and are a first step towards linking parasite infections to basic biological data gathered during necropsy. Expand
HEALTH EVALUATION OF FREE-RANGING EASTERN BETTONGS (BETTONGIA GAIMARDI) DURING TRANSLOCATION FOR REINTRODUCTION IN AUSTRALIA
Abstract Sixty (19 male, 41 female) free-ranging adult eastern bettongs (Bettongia gaimardi) were captured in Tasmania and translocated to the Australian Capital Territory between July 2011 andExpand
Helminth parasites of Australasian monotremes and marsupials.
This work includes all published records, to April 2015, of the helminths occurring in Australasian monotremes and marsupials, with due regard for synonymy and an attempt to include life historyExpand
Year-Long Presence of Eimeria echidnae and Absence of Eimeria tachyglossi In Captive Short-Beaked Echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus)
TLDR
The lack of coccidia in juvenile short-beaked echidnas suggests these animals are probably non-immune and should not be placed in environments heavily contaminated with oocysts, and this study represents an important step in understanding the host–parasite interaction between coccidium and short- beaked E. echidnae. Expand
Is Toxoplasma gondii a threat to the conservation of free-ranging Australian marsupial populations?
TLDR
A lack of scientifically robust data available on this topic indicates that assertions that free-ranging populations of Australian marsupials are particularly susceptible to T. gondii infection and to toxoplasmosis are premature, and the threat of T. Gondii to the viability offree-ranging marsupial populations should be regarded, at this stage, as a hypothesis. Expand
Western Australian Marsupials Are Multiply Infected with Genetically Diverse Strains of Toxoplasma gondii
TLDR
The presence of multiple T. gondii infections in macropods suggests that native mammals have the potential to promote regular cycles of sexual reproduction in the definitive felid host in this environment. Expand
Recent aspects on epidemiology, clinical disease, and genetic diversity of Toxoplasma gondii infections in Australasian marsupials
TLDR
Most Australasian marsupials in their native land, Australia and New Zealand, have high prevalence of T. gondii, and kangaroo meat can be a source of infection for humans if consumed uncooked/undercooked. Expand
Biodiversity of parasite assemblages in the genus Petrogale and its relation to the phylogeny and biogeography of their hosts
TLDR
A comparison of the parasite communities amongst Petrogale host species indicated a highly significant correlation between the parasite community similarity, and the phylogeny and biogeography of their Petrogales hosts, suggesting high host specificity within their associated parasite assemblages. Expand
Ticks of Australia. The species that infest domestic animals and humans.
TLDR
The present book has identification guides and accounts of the biology and diseases associated with the 16 species of ticks that may feed on domestic animals and humans in Australia. Expand

TLDR
An adult female bettong (Bettongia gaimardi) presented with extensive alopecia and dermatitis affecting the ventral and lateral aspects of the neck and thorax, and large numbers of the dermanyssid mite Thadeua greeni were found. Expand

Parasites of the bridled nailtail wallaby (Onychogalea fraenata) (Marsupialia : Macropodidae)
TLDR
Since the definitive hosts of these parasites are cats and canids respectively, control of cat, dog and dingo populations within the Park will lessen the incidence of infection with these parasites. Expand
Cystic echinococcosis in a wild population of the brush-tailed rock-wallaby (Petrogale penicillata), a threatened macropodid
TLDR
The results indicate that hydatid infection may be a significant risk to threatened populations of small macropodids and should be addressed in conservation management plans for these animals. Expand
HEMATOLOGY AND SERUM BIOCHEMISTRY OF THE BRUSH-TAILED ROCK-WALLABY (PETROGALE PENICILLATA)
TLDR
This study provides the most comprehensive serum biochemistry reference range for any macropodid marsupial yet published and monitors condition of wild populations and individual animals using hematologic and serum biochemicals. Expand
PARASITES AND ASSOCIATED PATHOLOGY OF THE SWAMP WALLABY, WALLABIA BICOLOR (MARSUPIALIA)
TLDR
Thirty-five swamp wallabies from Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, Australia were examined for parasites and Echinococcus granulosus was the only parasite found which also occurs in domestic animals. Expand
Coccidiosis in wild grey kangaroos.
TLDR
The association of coccidial infection with deaths in a population of wild grey kangaroos is reported, and parasitological and necropsy findings in a sample of affected animals are described. Expand
Epidemiological Observations on the Helminth Parasites of Macropus Giganteus Shaw in Victoria.
TLDR
There was a strong relationship between rising numbers of this species and falling plasma protein, haemoglobin concentration and haematocrit values and this species can cause heavy mortality in juvenile kangaroos in enclosed populations when winter feed is depleted and when the small animals with no fat reserves experience maximum cold stress.

Filarial parasites (Nematoda: Filarioidea) of Australian animals.
Three species of filarial worms are known from bats: an unrecognized species recorded by Johnston from Pteropus poliocephalus (Pteropodidae); Litomosa miniopteri, sp. nov., from MiniopterusExpand
SOME EFFECTS OF TICK INFESTATIONS ON JUVENILE NORTHERN BROWN BANDICOOT (ISOODON MACROURUS)
TLDR
It is suggested that tick infestations may influence the health of juvenile I. macrourus by reducing growth rate, reduced haematocrit value and increased number of white blood cells when released into tick-free enclosures. Expand
A guideline for the preparation of species descriptions in the Eimeriidae.
TLDR
This work proposes a specific set of guidelines for the preparation of species descriptions of coccidia based predominently on the structure of the sporulated oocyst, and emphasizes that ancillary data be incorporated whenever possible with the species description. Expand
Prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii antibody in wild macropods.
TLDR
An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was developed to measure total antibody to Toxoplasma gondii in serum samples from macropods and found there was a significant difference in possession of T. Gondii antibodies between adult Tasmanian pademelons and Bennett's wallabies. Expand
