Testing the energetic equivalence rule with helminth endoparasites
We measured endoparasite
loads from fecal egg counts assuming that chronic stress may suppress immune function and thereby allow an increase in parasite load (Dhabhar and McEwen, 1997; Dhabhar, 2009), but we found no relationship between fecal CORT concentration and parasite load.
striatuli, and one species of endoparasites
in larval and adult stage, the P.
are one of the major problems which affect the productivity of buffalo, cow, goat and sheep.
Use of salt blocks in mangers, vaccination, drenching against endoparasite
and hay making were perceived to be medium, tending towards high, with rank orders 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th, respectively.
The main goal of this study was to examine the effect of this tropical endoparasite
on female mice odor preference.
brevipinna was found in large quantities in the ovaries, being the most prevalent endoparasite
prevalence in truck farmers and in the vegetables of Feira do Produtor de Maringa, Parana.
is carried by mosquitoes and affects both dogs and cats?
Further, a bird's ability to defend a territory on a lek has been shown in grouse to be related to body condition, or the ability to maintain body condition, or both (Hupp and Braun, 1989), while endoparasite
loads have been reported to have a negative effect on body condition (Wetmore, 1939; Hoglund et al.
2007) such as Neoechinorhynchus buttnerae, an obligate endoparasite
found in the intestines of the fish (Santos et al.
In total, eight endoparasite
species were found in S.
isoporum is not specific endoparasite
for host species that commonly seen in more than 16 cyprinid fish, viz.
Three usual methods were performed for endoparasite
diagnostic: sedimentation (Hoffman et al.
community of Rattus norvegicus captured in a shanty town of Buenos Aires City, Argentina.
