On the archaeological site of Menez-Dregan in Brittany, France, dated 300,000-500,000 years-old, paleoparasitological analysis of cave deposits led to the detection of well-preserved helminth eggs, which morphology and morphometry pointed to the diagnosis of Toxocara canis eggs, a parasite of carnivore mammals. Paleolithic remains suggested a parasitism of the hyena Crocuta spelaea or other canids that inhabited the region. 
Earliest Evidence of Toxocara sp. in a 1.2-Million-Yr-Old Extinct Hyena (Pachycrocuta brevirostris) Coprolite from Northwest Pakistan
TLDR
Micromorphological thin sectioning and Fourier-transform infrared spectrometry analysis confirms the coprolite belonged to a bone-eating carnivore, likely the extinct giant short-faced hyena (Pachycrocuta brevirostris), the earliest evidence for Toxocara sp. Expand
Toxocara eggs in an 18th century Franciscan from Portugal. The challenge of differentiating between parasitism and chance in Paleoparasitology.
TLDR
Ingestion of feces-contaminated food or water, geophagy, or true infection are hypotheses considered in this study, which demonstrates the difficulty of interpreting the presence of animal parasites in human remains. Expand
Helminths in feline coprolites up to 9000 years in the Brazilian Northeast.
TLDR
This study analyzed 30 feline coprolites from southeastern Piauí taken from archeological sites used by human groups in the past to find eggs of Spirometra sp. Expand

TLDR
The composition of helminthes found in ancient feces of animals allows evaluation nutritional parameters of the past, and provides information on animal husbandry. Expand

TLDR
The paleoparasitological analyses were performed in two steps, the first is to confirm the classification of the sampled material as coprolites, and the second is to develop new analyses to add new parasite taxa. Expand

The occurrence of an abdominal fauna in an articulated tapir (Tapirus polkensis) from the Late Miocene Gray Fossil Site, Northeastern Tennessee.
TLDR
A rich palyno-fauna comprised of about 94% egg/oocyst-like structures and 6% pollen and other palynomorphs was revealed suggesting that the samples represent the abdominal contents of T. polkensis during the Late Miocene-Early Pliocene. Expand
New paleoparasitological techniques
TLDR
The main object of this study is to contribute to the application of other methods used successfully in the field of palaeoparasitology: the hydration, the McMaster method, the use of the compressorium and triquineloscope, as well as the different methods used to analyse hair samples. Expand
