We present results of the paleoparasitological analysis of Cervidae coprolites that were recovered from the archaeological site Furna do Estrago, Pernambuco, Brazil. Trichuris sp. eggs were recovered from the coprolite samples dated 1,040 ± 50 years before present. This is the first record of Trichuris sp. in semiarid Cervidae, unexpectedly recorded in archaeological material. 
Helminths in feline coprolites up to 9000 years in the Brazilian Northeast.
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
First paleoparasitological record of digenean eggs from a native deer from Patagonia Argentina (Cueva Parque Diana archaeological site).
The presence of representatives of digenean species in endemic deer from Patagonia in ancient times is confirmed and the presence of a trematode disease prior to the arrival of European cattle is confirmed. Expand
Ancient parasites from a peat bog: New insights into animal presence and husbandry in Crete over the past 2000 years
This paper presents an original palaeoparasitological study performed on samples from a sedimentary core in a peat bog (Asi Gonia, White Mountains, Crete, Greece). The aim of the study is to test theExpand
First description of Enterobius vermicularis egg in a coprolite dated from the pre-contact in Brazil
It was possible to detect several indications of an omnivorous diet from the individual who lived in this region in the period of 1985 years B.C. and also the detection of E. vermicularis, which strongly indicated that the analyzed coprolite may have come from a human. Expand
Ancient Parasite Analysis and Zoonotic Potential of Spirometra sp. in Two Related Sites from Pernambuco, Brazil.
The presence of this parasite, of a water fount near the site, and the findings of the bones of some of the second intermediate hosts in these sites, suggest that this infection was probably present in this population of ancient populations. Expand
Ancient parasites from endemic deer from “CUEVA PARQUE DIANA” archeological site, Patagonia, Argentina
The present contribution reports the first paleoparasitological results obtained from coprolites of endemic deer from the archeological site “Cueva Parque Diana,” Neuquén Province, Argentina, and discusses the possible diseases found in ancient times. Expand
Manual resumido para recolha de amostras para estudos paleoparasitológicos e de paleodieta
This manual aims to guide anthropologists, archaeologists, paleontologists and other professionals involved in excavations and / or curators of museum collections to collect samples for studies of parasites and food remains in old materials. Expand
Paleoparasitological analysis of a coprolite assigned to a carnivoran mammal from the Upper Pleistocene Touro Passo Formation, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
This is the first record of paleoparasites discovered in a vertebrate host from the Touro Passo Formation and suggests that these specimens belong respectively to the orders Eucoccidiorida and Strongylida represented by several parasitic species of the alimentary tract of modern carnivore. Expand
New paleoparasitological investigations from the pre-inca to hispanic contact period in northern Chile.
The study showed that the Inca expansion influenced host-parasite-environment relationships in the Lluta Valley, and a diachronic pattern was not detected. Expand
Sampling guidelines for paleoparasitological and paleodietary studies
Paleoparasitology is a discipline that searches for endo and ectoparasites helping in the identification of disease and migration. The success of these analyses is influenced by the quality of theExpand


Strongyloides ferreirai Rodrigues, Vicente & Gomes, 1985 (Nematoda, Rhabdiasoidea) in rodent coprolites (8,000-2,000 years BP), from archaeological sites from Piaui, Brazil.
Eggs and larvae of Strongyloides ferreirai Rodrigues, Vicente & Gomes, 1985 are identified in Kerodon rupestris (Wied.) coprolites dated from 8.000-2.000 years BP (Before Present), collected fromExpand
Eimeria oocysts in deer coprolites dated from 9,000 years BP
Excavations performed by the archaeological team of the Fundacao Museu do Homem Americano at the site of Perna I yielded small rounded coprolites from a layer dated by radiocarbon from 9.000 years BP (Before Present). Expand
Helminth fauna of cervids in Belorussian Polesie
Sixteen of the helminth species found from the Belorussian Polesie in the period 1981-1998 are known to infect humans, domestic animals and/or farm animals. Expand
Parasites of Moose (Alces alces) from an Agricultural Area of Eastern Ontario
The results suggest that the parasite fauna of the moose may have been influenced by the absence or scarcity of other species of wild cervids or carnivores and by the presence of domestic livestock. Expand

It is argued that while the successful cross infections suggest a close evolutionary link, the differences in morphology, exogenous and endogenous development provide sufficient criteria for the two parasites to be maintained as separate species. Expand

Low-level parasitic worm burdens may reduce body condition in free-ranging red deer (Cervus elaphus)
Evidence for parasite impacts in 285 red deer harvested during 1991 and 1992 on the Isle of Rum suggests that further studies of wild populations are justified, in particular where high local host densities exist or alternative ungulate hosts are present, and, where experimental treatments are tractable.
