SUMMARY Objective:To determine the prevalence, intensity and morphometric parameters of haemoparasites of small rodents inhabiting Kakamega forest of western Kenya. Methods: Praomys jacksoni (n=59), Mastomys sp (n=27), Mus sp (n=7), Mylomys dybowski (n=6), and Tachyoryctes sp (n=44), randomly captured were surveyed for haemoparasites by microscopy. Observed parasites were described and thirteen morphometric parameter measurements of each group compared among the rodent species. Prevalence was… CONTINUE READING
