Sarcocysts were found in striated muscle of 21 adult wading birds among 145 examined grossly and 70 examined histologically (calculated prevalence = 24%), and in none of 332 immature wading birds examined from Florida (USA). Six of 12 species of ciconiforms were infected (Ardea herodias, Casmerodius albus, Egretta caerulea, Nyctanassa violacea, Butorides striatus, Eudocimus albus). Cysts were filamentous, usually extended the entire length of the muscle fiber, and were visible grossly in 33% of… 

Sarcocystis Meningoencephalitis in a Northern Gannet (Morus bassanus)

Because the life cycle of this parasite appears to be land based, urban waste discharge to marine/estuarine environments may be a source of infection for marine species.

Occurrence of Sarcocystis falcatula in Captive Psittacine Birds in Brazil

Although fatalities affected 16 species of psittacine birds, mortality was highest in Old World species, which were most susceptible to the pulmonary form of sarcocystosis.

Morphologic and molecular characteristics of Sarcocystis atraii n. sp. (Apicomplexa: Sarcocystidae) infecting the common coot (Fulica atra) from Egypt

A single morphologic type of Sarcocystis cysts found in two out of 43 examined common coots, Fulica atra, is considered to represent a new species for which the name Sarcocystis atraii n. sp. is

The present state of species-systematics in Sarcocystis Lankester, 1882 (Protista, Sporozoa, Coccidia)

The genus Sarcocystis Lankester, 1882, including the synonymous genus Frenkelia Biocca, 1968, (SarcocyStidae Poche, 1913) is revised on the basis of named species and it is stressed that the ultrastructure of the sarcocyst wall is a reliable character in mature sarcocysts, contrary to misleading interpretations.

Sarcocystis sp. from the goldeneye (Bucephala clangula) and the mallard (Anas platyrhynchos): cyst morphology and ribosomal DNA analysis

By light microscopy, cysts of Sarcocystis sp. (cyst type I) from the goldeneye (Bucephala clangula) seemed filamentous with a smooth and thin (<1 μm) cyst wall. Ultrastructurally, the cyst wall

The conclusion drawn was that the arctic fox can be one of the definitive hosts of Sarcocystis sp.

AN ANNOTATED CHECKLIST OF PATHOGENIC MICROORGANISMS ASSOCIATED WITH MIGRATORY BIRDS

The potential for transport and dissemination of certain pathogenic microorganisms by migratory birds is of concern. Migratory birds might be involved in dispersal of microorganisms as their

Morphologic identification of a new Sarcocystis sp. in the common moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) (Aves: Gruiformes: Rallidae) from Brolos Lake, Egypt

The current study provides the first record of infection with Sarcocystis species in the common moorhens from Brolos Lake, KafrElsheikh province, Egypt, using light and transmission electron microscopy.

The intermediate host spectrum in a Sarcocystis species of birds.

To determine the intermediate host range, six avian species, including canaries, zebra finches, budgerigars, pigeons, chickens, and guinea fowl were inoculated orally with Sarcocystis sporocysts derived from experimentally infected opossums.

Sarcocysts in cardiac and skeletal muscles of budgerigars were examined transmission electron microscopically 5 to 168 days after experimental infection with Sarcocystis falcatula and sufficient morphologic differences were found which seem to justify their semantic differentiation.
