1. Intensive population studies were conducted for 10 years on red grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus) and the parasitic nematode, Trichostrongylus tenuis, in northern England. Winter loss was the key factor determining changes in grouse numbers, although breeding losses were also important. 2. T. tenuis had an aggregated distribution within the adult grouse population, even though the degree of aggregation was relatively low compared with other parasite systems. Recruitment of parasites into the… CONTINUE READING
