Rumen ciliates of ten Tanzanian short horn zebu cattle were examined. A total of 15 genera and 46 species were identified, including a new Entodinium species. The ciliate density was 22.2 x 10(4)ml(-1). The number of species per host and the diversity index showed high values, 33.8 and 2.80, respectively. Rumen ciliates had a low percentage composition of the genus Entodinium (7.0-25.0%) and a slightly higher percentage composition of the genera, Eudiplodinium (19.3%), Diplodinium (14.1%), and… CONTINUE READING
